About BWD

We empower Black women data leaders to shape their career path, exercise their own agency and expand their wealth.

Black Women in Data Professional Development Community


We are invested in supporting and retaining Black women in the data workforce as entrepreneurs, leaders, managers and practitioners. Our vision is to support Black women in occupying 13% of data roles, from entry-level positions to C-suite positions by 2040. We focus on coaching to develop their data, communication and entrepreneurship skills. Our strategy to accomplishing our vision is to provide growth opportunities via our signature event, the Black Women in Data Summit, a slate of specialized professional development sessions and partnering with organizations who desire an inclusive data future.
