Our HIV & Health Equity’s GENHERATE program was created to empower Black women in sexual and reproductive health topics and other health disparities that disproportionately impact them.

GENHERATE will provide women with the skills, resources, and knowledge to become advocates and changemakers in their communities to create a safe and more equitable world for Black women while also pushing for career opportunities in public health.

Acceptance into the GENHERATE program will include a trip and registration to attend the State of Black Health conference held in San Juan, PR, between September 6th-8th and a $3000 stipend will be dispersed throughout the program.

Program Eligibility:

  • Black-identifying women between the ages of 25-34

  • Interested in learning how HIV impacts Black Women in the U.S.

  • Interested in becoming an advocate for HIV

  • Dedicated to bringing knowledge learned from the program back to their communities

The application deadline for the 2023 GenHERate cohort has passed, check back next year!
