Mission: To provide a mutually supportive and positive environment in which every individual member has the opportunity to develop and promote the ideals of honesty, service, morality, ethical conduct and leadership, which in turn fosters self confidence and personal growth. It is also the mission of this organization to create opportunities for its members to give back to the community.
Vision: To empower women of color to realize their dreams and achieve their full potential. Through our organization, women can meet, socialize, and network with like minded professionals who experience the same challenges that we face daily in our personal, professional and social lives. In our organization we will encourage each other to improve our communication and leadership skills and find the courage to change.
Symbol: The Black Butterfly.
It is believed that black butterflies are the symbol of transition, renewal or rebirth. It is also believed that black butterflies could be a symbol of rebirth of something or people. They are also symbolized for longevity and shift in the power.
In short, black butterflies are supposed to be the sign of positive change in the present situation.
Through the sisterhood of BPW, we find unity in socializing with like minded professionals of color by traveling, enjoying meet and greets, happy hours,
exercising and various other social activities that provide ourselves with a time and space for just us "girlfriends," away from the job, kids, the ordinary stresses of everyday life and yes, even the husband!
Sisterhood is the solidarity of women based on
shared conditions, experience, or concerns…
Sisterhood is not just the beauty of the turquoise and white
It’s about friendship and trust sharing hopes and dreams
It’s what lies deep within the depths of our hearts
For each other growing together becoming strong, as one
Helping each other, building each other to withstand and overcome
Supporting your sister when she is in need
Wiping her tears and easing her pain when she bleeds
Being a shoulder to lean on in times of despair
Letting her know that you’ll always be there
Sisterhood is not just a word to toss around
It’s the warmth and affection you have for each other
and the relationships that grow
It’s the tug at your heart when she’s going through something
It’s you doing what you can do to help her pull through
Sharing her burdens and easing the load she may bare
It’s about being consistent and showing your care
