“I was desperately seeking a network of Black professionals in my new hometown of Boston and after a year or scrambling, this group appeared in a note that was forwarded to me. To have a space like this is so important and already, I’ve done business with a few members. This is truly a gift.”

Michael Bobbitt, Cambridge

“BWB has been a great platform to connect with likeminded Black professionals. As a native Bostonian, it’s been great to expand my network even more. More than I thought possible.”

Charlene Chinn, Roslindale

“I joined BWB because so many great things are happening around the city hosted by people of color that I never knew about it. This is the opportunity to not only become aware, but connect with these amazing people. My favorite thing about BWB is when someone asks if I know anyone I can always say, ‘let me check with my network of friends.”

Frantz Paillant Jr., Dorchester
