OUR MISSION

Boston While Black is a membership network for Black professionals, entrepreneurs, and students who are seeking connection & community.

Through a digital members-only platform and weekly programming and events, we serve members who are seeking access to mentors & leaders who they can relate to, culturally relevant social experiences, resources on how to navigate the city, and an authentic personal and professional network.

Our community is powered by the experiences of our Founder, Sheena Collier, who moved here 15+ years ago to attend Harvard and had her own challenges navigating, particularly as a Black woman.

We are also informed by the many stories that we have heard from Black people who grew up here, but still don’t feel a sense of belonging.

Through Boston While Black, native Bostonians & transplants are joining together to create the city they want to live in!
