ABOUT BLACK WOMEN'S NETWORK
Black Women's Network, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established in 1979, is a beacon in the business community offering a nonpartisan environment for Networking & Mentoring Urban Women in Business, Career, Personal and Professional Development.
Black Women's Network (BWN) was formed in March 1979 as the result of the energy of the Black women who attended a regional career conference in Downtown, Los Angeles, California.
Many of these women in attendance realized the potential strength that could be derived from creating a supportive organization that could serve as a vehicle for addressing the specific needs of professional Black women, namely, to:
WHO WE ARE
Our Vision: We believe in Networking - Networking as the vital linking of people with people and people with services.
Our Mission: We support the growth and development of Black Women in general and especially in their businesses & careers. We believe we're all in the business of living our best lives, as well as the professionals and entrepreneurs among us.
Black Women's Network serves to enhance communication between black women, to encourage achievement, and further the economic and personal success of black women and their families inside and outside our organization because of Americas history and continued culture of racism, oppression and injustice in communities of color.
Black Women's Network strives to provide a safe space, information & tools to thrive in spite of the racist culture.
