BIWOC* Rising

BIWOC* Rising is the first and only intersectional coworking space & social club in Berlin and Germany. This safer space is exclusively for women, trans, inter and non-binary people who identify as Black, indigenous or of Colour. Through training programs, empowerment workshops, and a work-desk in the heart of Kreuzberg, BIWOC* Rising is creating a new working culture–a working culture that transcends the white, homogenous, capitalist one that has been a core driver of gentrification and marginalization in Berlin.

(H)our Realities podcast brings to the air the conversations, new perspectives, ideas, and expertise that are shared in our safer space. With a Special Guest each episode, we exchange experiences and knowledge, heal and laugh, and turn these into powerful tools to dismantle racism and other forms of discrimination.

Our focus is racism and discrimination in workplaces and labour markets. We can only tackle those with an intersectional approach. To have an impact we need to discuss everything that influences us, positively and negatively. We don’t live single lives and therefore our stories are rich and need to be shared.
