Welcome to Black Women of Influence

A network for women who are committed to 

"Helping Each Other Win"!

About Us

Our History


Envisioned in 2007 by three friends who wanted to provide peer support for professional women who often sit isolated in organizations with few other women of color to count on for support and mentorship.

Our Sisterhood


A network of cross-industry women. We come from all backgrounds and fields. 

We are corporate and non-profit professionals, lawyers, educators and entrepreneurs. 

What we have in common is a deep commitment to Helping Each Other Win!

Our Mission


To do what we can, however we can, from where we sit individually and across organizations, levels and generations to make a difference for others.
