The RC Lounge

A global membership community for Black, Indigenous, and Women of Color social impact professionals.

About Us

The RC Lounge is a premium membership community for The Rooted Collaborative - a global community focused on the growth and development of Black, Indigenous, and Women of Color in the social impact sector.

Why Join Us?

You’re a relationship builder, a mission accelerator and a money magnet. You chose to be a social impact professional because you believed in your mission that the work doesn’t pay for itself!  But when you look to your left and your right at work-- you’re often the only one that looks like you! 

You are NOT alone. And you have waited LONG enough to gather, learn and grow with other women just like you. Other professionals who do the work but are tired of having to do THE WORK alone. 

The Rooted Collaborative community is designed to work in service of historically marginalized subgroups in philanthropy, specifically people who identify as women and people of color. We honor the intersectional nature of identity and acknowledge the importance of gender identity and gender expression. We invite all individuals who identify as women and people of color to be a part of our community and value the unique differences of each of our community members. We are committed to creating a psychologically safe, inclusive and equitable space for all of our members. 

What Can You Expect?

The Rooted Pods 

There is NOTHING like the group chat. And we know that having your group of women who understand your professional and personal journey makes the difference in how you experience work and life. You’ll be grouped by career track, interests and locale into Rooted Pods; your personal accountability group. Led by an RC Ambassador, you’ll have your own check ins, challenges and an opportunity to do amazing work together. Bonus: I’m envisioning the BEST lip sync battles at the Rooted Retreat! 

Weekly Co-Working Sessions 

We are all working women. And we could all use some accountability and real time feedback  to keep us going. Each week, you’ll have the opportunity to co-work in our Rooted Co-working sessions and ask your fellow Lounge members to hold you accountable, get a second pair of eyes on your work, and listen to music in our virtual co-working space.

Coffee in the Car + The Wine Down 

Our monthly evening Wine Downs are always a hit! But our membership lives across 5 time zones so we will alternate between our evening Wine Down “kiki corner” and early morning Coffee in the Car chats with our Founder, Kishshana Palmer, and our RC Ambassadors.

Quarterly Wellness Sessions 

Did someone say woosah? Whether you need to stretch and unwind with an interactive yoga session, or control your breath through meditation, we’re committed to creating space for you to inhale and exhale with us. These sessions are ticketed events for the public and free for members (a.k.a YOU!)

Seed Water Bloom - Our Learning Lab

Each month, we highlight dope women within The RC Lounge community. And you can look forward to guest speakers each month to deliver workshops and masterclasses that will help you to LIVE well and LEAD well.

Discounted memberships with our Partners 

Through our partnership with The Resource Alliance (based in the UK) and We Are For Good, you’ll have access to their learning platforms, events and conferences at a reduced rate.
