The BlackFemaleProject Conversation Series provides a space where Black women are safe and can be vulnerable. Women talk openly about workplace experiences and share lessons learned and words of wisdom that inform, affirm and heal.

In an effort to move conversations toward healing, we consider:
  • What strategies have we developed to thrive professionally?
  • What lessons have we learned?
  • How are we passing our knowledge to the girls who are coming behind us?

About BlackFemaleProject

Preparing the next generation of Black women
for the realities of the workplace
BlackFemaleProject prepares Black women to navigate the work world. We share lessons learned and words of wisdom from women who thrive in their careers and lives. As a result, in this post-affirmative action era, we interrupt the many impacts of structural racism through intergenerational conversation and community-building.
