The Women of Color Foundation (WOCF) is launching an 8-month "virtual" program, the Black Women’s Leadership Project (BWLP), aimed at grooming and supporting Black women senior executives and entrepreneurs to advance into C-Suite level positions within corporations, businesses, and non-profit organizations. The BWLP will provide educational sessions on leadership facilitated by seasoned executives, prominent business leaders and female entrepreneurs in the community. Participants in the program will also meet monthly with women executives and coaches who will provide more personalized training and opportunities for high-level networking.
The Black Women’s Leadership Project, which officially kicks off virtually on April 28th, is supported by a generous grant from the Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation. Black women who are interested in participating in the program must complete an application and have the support of senior leadership within their organization. The application process is competitive, and finalists will be selected by a committee comprised of WOCF Board Members and C-Suite level women executives from the greater Cleveland business and civic community. Interested parties should review the information and instructions on how to apply below.
