WHO WE ARE
The Black Women’s Wealth Alliance (BWWA) was established as a working group in 2014 where we convened 20 Historical Black women. In 2016, BWWA was established as Minnesota’s first Black woman owned Public Benefit Corporation (a social enterprise). BWWA leverages Black culture as its core resource and educational tool to facilitate cooperative economics through wealth literacy, home ownership and cooperative & procurement business education. Our team brings more than 40 years of impactful community wealth building knowledge, skills, strategies and networks. We are experienced entrepreneurs, educators, grassroot and professional leaders working across the business, wealth and community development sectors.
A nation can rise no higher than its woman. 66% of Black women nationally are the primary breadwinners of their households compared to Black women of Minnesota who are nearly 80% primary breadwinners of their households. We conclude and hold true that the overall well-being and economic stability of the Black community greatly depends on the well-being and economic stability of Black women and girls.
