Being ME, the ‘ME’ stands for Muslimah Empowered, is a Canada-wide sisters not-for-profit organization that strives to connect Mulsim women and girls in faith to ignite change. Starting out as a Conference in 2011, Being ME has now grown to include a portfolio of unique events focusing on the Muslimah Empowerment agenda and currently operates in Toronto, Calgary, Vancouver, Ottawa, Halifax, and Online.
This conference embarks upon the mission to give all Muslim women a voice or an outlet to express the reality of their lifestyles, share accomplishments that benefit humanity, and inspire others to do the same. We also provide the opportunity for all Muslim women to connect with each other so that we become pillars that support each other and the Deen.
In 2018, Being ME expanded its scope to include year-round initiatives and developed niche products catering to different segments within our community.
Held at a masjid near you, we explore the lives of Muslim women throughout the ages who rose to great heights, overcame incredible odds, and left a lasting legacy for those to come after.
We address hot topics/trends, community challenges, and current affairs and we endeavor to foster those discussions in a therapeutic fashion. The coffee just makes us think harder.
