Mentor Summit 2024

Amplifying Mentorship with Authentic Sisterhood

Our signature event is designed to celebrate and support mentorship and community among Black professional women. Accomplished black women will come together to openly share their experiences and connect with leaders and entrepreneurs committed to empowering the next generation of Black career women.  

The event offers a safe and supportive environment where women can gain valuable insights and advice. We believe that mentorship is crucial to success, and by amplifying its power, we inspire Black career women to excel in their chosen fields while being true to themselves.

What black women want most from work

Black women are far less likely to get help navigating organizational politics and balancing work and personal lives, and managers are less likely to promote their accomplishments. Black women with leadership ambitions are particularly interested in paving the way for others and positively impacting company culture.
