AWB Community Picks - Valentine Edition

The way that Black women, globally, have had to jump through, fight through and arrive on the other side to get through these barriers is a message of empowerment. But I think the call is for more transformation. We need the frameworks to be equitable, accessible, and we need the investments

At the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, our aim is to put together the right structures to invest in black women and their brilliant and creative ideas. A simple why is because they know what’s up

Africa is the future. I think we all recognize that we are living in an African century and it’s African women who really drive that future. So, focusing on those women, focusing on the issues that will create opportunities for them is the way to ensure that we have a bright and prosperous future for everybody on this planet

I’m hopeful that my daughter’s generation won’t have the same challenges that we have. It’s so important for us to build businesses and institutions where we have wealth that we can invest in ourselves

I don’t want us thinking ‘because I’m Black, I can’t do this’. I want us to take what we think we lack and make that our strong point – use that as the force taking us where we want
