After becoming a mother to Marley and Nesta, Anita was determined to excel in both her career and motherhood, but found herself struggling to achieve balance. However, she soon realized that it wasn't balance she needed, but rather an understanding of how to reimagine a career that accommodated all her passions. This realization sparked a curiosity in her about how other women were coming to terms with their desire for a fulfilling life by reimagining the role of their careers in their lives.
With this newfound inspiration, Anita embarked on a journey to create a show that would empower women to pursue their passions and achieve success in all aspects of their lives. This led to the birth of an entirely new career direction and the establishment of a company that focuses on helping women understand how they can incorporate all their passions into their careers and lives. Through her work, Anita continues to inspire and empower women to pursue their dreams and find fulfillment in every aspect of their lives.
Women of color embody strength, hope, growth, and power, among other outstanding values. However, they have also faced persistent and unique challenges on various socio-economic levels, which have threatened their livelihoods, ambitions, and dreams. Despite the increasing global push for gender equality, the visibility, voice, and value of women of color urgently require acknowledgment, elevation, and inclusion to achieve real progress.
Anita Erskine’s SHEROES is designed to be an avenue for Education (formal and informal) and a platform for Mentorship through Storytelling. It is where the experiences shared serve our Women and Girls, by giving them the encouragement to pursue their personal and professional dreams and ambitions.
