The Embodied Leadership Project partners with The Black Women's Leadership Initiative at Five College Dance (BWLI). We support BWLI by offering our unique Equine Facilitated Learning practice and research to support BWLI's trauma-Informed and somatic approach to Black Women's leadership through dance.
