Nurturing BLACK: For Professionals

Nurturing Baby's Lived Experience as Cultural Kinship

Group Mentorship Program for Professionals

In today’s complex society, it’s not enough to just love your child. Parents and Caregivers must learn to, talk about, and dismantle racism in all its forms. They must be prepared to uplift Black identity in a culturally-responsive way and learn how to reassure confidence in their child as they navigate society’s expectation of being Black in the US. Join our four-week virtual group mentorship experience for professionals led by Ayisha Elliott to support parents in  learning these skills and more, while connecting with other professionals. 


Accreditation: This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of OHSU School of Medicine and Nurturely. The OHSU School of Medicine is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

Credit: Oregon Health & Science University School of Medicine designates this enduring material for a maximum of 8.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Meet the Leader...

Welcome! I’m Ayisha, creator and leader of Nurturing BLACK.

As an Equity & Inclusion facilitator, I was inspired to create this program because I see how important it is that Black and biracial babies are being raised in homes that are not only loving, but are prepared to help guide and navigate through an increasingly racialized society. To create a home that is culturally responsive and collectively centered in Anti-Racism. In this space, you can expect to feel supported in uncomfortable realizations, but empowered in the possibility of a grounded, equity-based awareness that will buoy your self esteem, self efficacy, and sense of purpose in this work
