Black Women's Leadership Alliance (BWLA) was born out of the desire of a small group of women who saw a void in women’s leadership programs that specifically addressed the needs of Black business women who want to grow their businesses and Black professional women who want to advance to higher ranks in corporate America. BWLA is committed to addressing the needs of Black women by being the catalyst that encourages innovation, collaboration and sisterhood among Black women in the business world.
