What people say about us
I was drawn to black women in HR because of the passion and focus the brand had for developing professional black women. After a few conversations, we were finally able to lock in a date to have a honest conversation about 'How Black women can amplify their voices'.
The conversation was amazing! It was energetic, engaging and really sparked some food for thought. Since then, it has been great working with the founder of BWHR, and as the discussions around growth and collaboration continue I am excited to see what the future holds.
