African Women Journey is a platform that unites Black and African diaspora women to share their stories, talents, energy, resources, and skills, with their peers in the United States and in Africa in order to grow together through shared experiences.
What makes African Women Journey different is our deep commitment to leveraging the talents, expertise, diversity of our community throughout our platform by amplifying stories, building a community, working together, and sharing resources to bridge the gap and strengthen the connection between Africa and its Diaspora.
