The Network for Black Women Leaders brings together a wide-reaching collection of communities descended from Africa, situated across different sectors, communities and locations with varying levels of expertise. Members of our network include women of African descent migrated from the Caribbean and Africa, and include indigenous women, black British women, women from Africa and women of mixed heritage. The Network for Black Women Leaders hold regular networking events. These networking events offer a space to women of the African diaspora within and outside the women’s sector to discuss their differing approaches to leadership, obstacles met and overcome and how we can come together to learn, share and develop each other despite different knowledge and experiences. In the face of being at different points in our life journey, we are united in the struggle against racism and sexism. The NBWL is led by WRC’s Deputy Chief Executive and is supported by a group of advisors who assist with directing, planning and advancing NBWL. External expert advisors: Dolly Ogunrinde, Patricia Alert, Rosemarie Jackson and Chantelle Walker. All are women of the African diaspora. Find out more about the Network for Black Women Leaders here.
