Vanishing Women Film
Why Professional Women of Color are Fleeing the Corporate World
About the Film
... is a timely and thought-provoking documentary that explores what happened to all the women who were supposed to be in board rooms and the c-suite and why they are choosing to exit.
VANISHING WOMEN follows seasoned professional women of colour as they come to terms with the life change trauma they faced, how they were pushed out of corporate at the peak of their careers due to toxic environments created by chronic sexism, ageism, racism, bullying and harassment and how they rebuilt their lives and careers on their own terms
VANISHING WOMEN is an exploration of toxic workplaces and personal prices paid by these women in one of the world's most liberal cities and the implications for women working all over the world.
...the voices of such women must not fall silent so future generations of black women aren't forced to vanish too." 20 year financial service veteran, London

VANISHING WOMEN will stimulate important conversations with the BIPOC and Professional women communities about women of all races can better take control of their professional happiness with or without the support of the corporate employers.
By exposing more women in abusive and toxic work environments to the stories in VANISHING WOMEN and the business leaders and allies we can help break the silence and shame that exists and help women suffering feel less alone and better access the limited support that is available.
VANISHING WOMEN is a film of hope and success as we share stories of how women are working through trauma and designing work and life on their own terms.
For business leaders, VANISHING WOMEN provides a chance for to hear to grow in empathy and proactive compassion by hearing firsthand the impact of a toxic work environment.
