About Me

I'm Sharyn Holmes and I'm a biracial woman living in Brisbane, Australia. I am an anti-oppression consultant, holistic coach, speaker, artist, writer and activist. 

Womxn of colour are underrepresented across many industries and that needs to change. We are the leaders the world needs. Leaders that future generations can look towards and see that our representation changes the world and changes lives. 

Formidable Voices is a space for Black, Indigenous and Womxn of Colour and accomplices. Our vision is to support, elevate, guide, teach, uplift and provide speaking and teaching opportunities, virtual and in-person events for womxn of colour around the world.
