Black Women's Network - Empowering Professional Women

Black Women's Network

The Black Women's Network was formed in 1979 Los Angeles by a group of African American women attending a career conference. They realized the potential they had to work together to support and motivate other businesswomen and their enterprises, so they organized the BWN and have been a strong force for black women entrepreneurs for 40 years.
