Due to the lack of diversity in the wellness industry, many Women of Color feel discouraged, unable, or scared to seek outlets for coping with trauma. I’d like to take a moment to introduce wellness industry disrupter, Dive in Well.

The global wellness market is now valued at $4.75 trillion. According to Fast Company, the health and wellness industry witnessed outstanding innovations that are spreading the gospel of self-care and affordable health solutions. But more needs to be done to reach broader audiences. Diversity and inclusion is a leading and necessary trend in wellness to realize this need.
Can You relate?
Over the fast few weeks, as I've listened to stories shared by Women of Color, I learned many of their experiences of seeking or rather not seeking mental healing were primarily due to the lack of diversity.
I learned because of my privilege, not once, have I ever had to endure those feelings, especially when walking into a yoga class. Because of my privilege, never, have I felt that these outlets (the books, classes, workshops, retreats) misunderstood me, didn't represent my community, or simply didn't relate to my experiences.
So I ask, if you, like me, have ever had the privilege of exploring a wellness benefit or relate to the importance of the industry, let's provide that same opportunity to our Friend of Color through supporting Dive in Well.
Support Dive in Well through donation.
June 16th through 23rd, on top of our own personal donation, we will be donating 10% of our net proceeds to Dive in Well.
