Awesome Black Women You Should Know

In March of 2017 we wrote a Forbes blog about an event titled Black Women Talk Tech. Since that time we have attended numerous events where we have met an increasing number of awesome Black women who have been successful in a variety of fields. On May 15, 2017, we wrote another Forbes blog celebrating 28 Black women, and decided to create the first version of this list. Since then we have received many more excellent suggestions, and the list has grown steadily.

Whether you are planning an event, looking for suppliers or talent, or simply wanting to increase the diversity of your network, you should consider these awesome women, follow them on social media, and share their content. Use the social share buttons below to help us spread the word, and if you have suggestion for additional women to add to this list, or if you wish to discuss a specific opportunity with one of them, please drop us a line

Please note that we have no commercial relationship with the women on this list, and we may not be able to respond to all requests.
