September 17th - 20th, 2024
Austin, TX


You are a powerhouse!

You’re committed to your personal growth and development.

You’ve been to women’s leadership development programs.
They didn’t speak to the complexities of jointly owning financial assets with family.

You’ve been to programs for family businesses, family offices or family foundations.
They didn’t speak to your unique interests and concerns as a woman.

At Sankofa Legacy Advisors, we get you.

We understand the challenges of being a woman in a family where family, business and ownership are intertwined.

That's why we're creating
The FEW:
Family Enterprise Women

  • Share your triumphs and tribulations in a private, confidential, no-judgment setting

  • Reap the benefits of coaching and community support, and
  • Have fun!

What Prior Retreat Participants Say

(Not a retreat for The FEW. Names not included to protect participants' privacy.)
I learned so many things. One of the most important is that it only takes one person to change – and I can be that person.  
Thomasina’s retreat changed my life.  It really helped me focus on communication with my mom in a different way, and  to see things from her perspective. Our relationship is so much better now.
I realized that I can improve our family business operations by changing how I communicate with staff and being clear with everyone about what I want.
The family diagram exercise put things in context in a way I’d never focused on before.
I’ve started to shape my identity separate from my mom and still be in relationship with her.

What Prior Retreat Participants Say

(Not a retreat for The FEW. Names not included to protect participants' privacy.)

I returned home willing to be the person to start
the conversations that my family has been avoiding.

I initiated conversations with both of my parents that might not have happened otherwise. It was incredibly uncomfortable, but I did it.

My relationships with my parents are works in progress, with an emphasis on “progress”.  It has required me working on myself and I can honestly say that I am in a much better place as a result of attending Thomasina’s retreat and what I’ve learned from her.
I’m finding the courage to be my authentic self with my family.


Who are The FEW and the retreat for? What if I don’t work in my family’s business or we no longer have an operating business?
Do you offer a discount if I register more than one person?
What is the refund policy?
What about confidentiality? How will you ensure that is shared and what happens at the retreat stays at the retreat?
What support is available after the retreat?
What if I have other questions?

We help families develop leaders to sustain both their financial wealth and their individual and collective well-being across generations.
