BWWS has exciting new opportunities, activities, and collaborations that are before us and ones we are actively pursuing which requires a seasoned and expert touch from someone passionate about helping Black women in business get the funding we need to go to next level equipped with a full-service space for our various "Entrepreneurship Ecosystem" business activities!
Asahi Pompey, global head of corporate engagement and president of Goldman Sachs Foundation was asked “What are some of the things you learned?" and she said: "Black women-led organizations need a number of things. They need access to trust-based funding with less restrictive requirements. They need multi-year commitments so that they can plan and build and implement the work, the good work that they’re doing. And they also need — and this is a particularly important one — visible sponsorship and validation from institutions and across sectors that can really help them to have impact.”
We are positioned and designed to be a voice, space, and advocate for Black women in business who are nonprofit, social enterprise, microenterprise, and microbusiness founders who need support, help, and training that BWWS was designed to provide! Help us on this journey to the next level by tapping into your grant writing creativity so that we can serve more Black women and communities locally and globally!
This project is for Impact Legacy Change Agents and Advocates of Socio-Economic Philanthropy! The desire to make a difference on the grassroots level where impact is most needed and felt is a calling and purpose-filled assignment! If you're an impact creative, join us and help move our mission forward to get the funding our 501(c)(3) nonprofit Entrepreneurial Development Organization (EDO) and "Entrepreneurship Ecosystem" requires!
