BWIS is a not-for-profit organization based in Chicago, Illinois with a global mission. Our organization was established to address the social, economic and political needs of Black Women in their communities. As an organization we serve to be a space and movement that fully commits to the wellness, progression, and interests of the globally underserved community of Black Women.
The Black Women community has struggled with divestment on gender, social and economic level. Despite system barriers, we have seen Black Women pressing forward making gains in academic, political and social sectors. BWIS recognizes the value and asset our community of Black Women imparts on a national and global scale. We understand with ongoing resources and support critical change and progress can be instrumentally amassed.
It takes a village, BWIS is committed to building villages of Black Women and allies willing to be a resource for equality, investment and change! It is our mission to be a resource through empowerment, business growth and development, physical and mental health campaigns/initiatives, social services, and youth advocacy.
Join BWIS and become part of the conversation and change!
