Who We Are

Welcome to The She League! The She League, Inc., is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit member-based organization dedicated to the advancement of women of color in corporate America and entrepreneurship by creating access, exposure and opportunity. Through our programs, we create networking opportunities, career development workshops, and discussions on leadership development.

The History of The She League

In 2023, The She League launched FlourisHER, a mentorship program for college women of color. Our 12-week program equips women of color in college with the essential tools and resources needed to pursue their career passions. Through a comprehensive curriculum that includes professional development, one on one mentorship, industry exposure, leadership development, wellness, community, and personal growth resources, participants are empowered to embark on a fulfilling and successful career path. We also launched The Bridge, our workforce development program designed to assist people of color in obtaining their next career opportunity. And in 2024, The She League is launching our membership program for young professional WOC interested in collaborating with one another. Together, our women build and develop leadership skills, gather tangible tools to advance their careers, and give back to the community through the initiatives and local community organizations.

The She League initiative started in 2019 as we promoted our inaugural conference, The She League 2020 Conference. The conference was presented by The Millennial Bridge, Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to bridging the gap between underemployed minorities and meaningful employment opportunities. All donations for the 2020 and 2022 conferences were through The Millennial Bridge, Inc.

In 2022, The She League branched out from a conference to a community-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization for young professional women of color. Our goal is to create community, opportunity and experience for entrepreneurs and women in corporate.

Here’s Our Why

Women in Corporate

In 2020, women of color represented 18% of entry-level positions in the workplace. Few advanced to leadership positions: managers (12%), senior managers/directors (9%), VPs (6%), SVPs (5%), and C-suite positions (3%). An often-cited statistic reveals that as a result of factors including, but not limited to, motherhood penalties, gender discrimination, and occupational segregation, women make 79 cents for every dollar men earn. However, Black women earn only 64 cents on the dollar, and Latinas earn a dismal 54 cents. Women of color continue to experience occupational and economic disadvantages that reflect the ways both race and gender affect their work experiences. Some of the barriers that women of color face include limited access to mentors, exclusion from elite networks, and the gender wage gap.

Women in Entrepreneurship

Women of color are a principal force behind one of the most important components of America’s current marketplace and our nation’s future economy: entrepreneurship. Although business capital has become more accessible to entrepreneurs through targeted capital-access programs such as microenterprise and venture-capital funds, women of color face extra challenges in obtaining this capital that other groups do not. Some research has found that women are more likely to be turned down for loans or receive loans with less favorable terms than their male counterparts.

Women in The She League

We are the underrepresented, under-invested, underemployed and underpaid; so let’s change that. Our goal is to increase these numbers by investing in women in the early and mid-stages of their careers by bringing in executive women of color to give us the blueprint to success.

Founder & CEO

“I founded The She League because I love seeing women of color succeed in everything that we do. I believe with the right access, opportunity, and knowledge, we will be unstoppable. By hearing from the women who paved the way for us and by building a community with one another, there is no telling what we will be able to achieve.”
