New Social Network Allows Professional African American Women To Connect Online is a new social network that enables professional Black women to "connect" with each other online. The site, which is free to join, gives African, Caribbean and African American women the ability to create a profile, view other profiles, and interact for business, networking, empowerment, entertainment and more.

Similar to Facebook and LinkedIn, Black Women Connect (BWC) has all the user functionality of a social network and more. The site offers the latest news, blogs, and events that appeal to Black women - and allows them to add their own content. They can create and manage public and private groups, and they can view and apply for the latest job opportunities from actual companies that are hiring.

Research shows that African American women are launching successful businesses at a faster rate than any other demographic. It has also been noted that more Black women than ever are assuming professional careers as leaders and managers at large corporations, and as work-at-home moms. BWC gives all of them the ability to share their resources, and network with others to provide the first global experience of its kind.

Most remarkably, the site is 100% free to use.

  1. This sounds like a great opportunity that sisters trying to "do it for themselves" should definitely take advantage of. Besides, it would hurt to have more "Bianca's" step on the scene. Now SHE is a woman who's got it going on. I’m talking the dream job, a man who’s got all the ladies drooling, and the spice to keep it all together when hell hits the fan. Think James Bond meets Sanaa Lathan in “Something New”. Check her out and see why she relates to the professional black women apart of this network.


    Don't be surprised if you get reeled in either. The fourth episode was available as of 7/7, but it's not too late to catch up. I work for Toyota, so I know all of these details.

    After viewing this blog and reading about the purpose of this social network, I figured that this is something that you ladies would be interested in. Check it out and see what I'm talking about. OH! And don't forget to hit me up and tell me what you think or of any other comments from others who might have gotten hooked to the series as well.

    Looking forward to the girl talk!
