The Black Pearl Project’s mission is to make a positive impact on women of color around the world by hosting events that facilitate and promote community service, success, sisterhood, and self care.
In addition to championing women to utilize their talents for both personal growth and in service to others, we also use our platform to create opportunities and experiences that foster social engagement among women. Basically, we’re here to help you build your tribe and serve your community at the same damn time.
But first, we’d like for you to understand exactly what we mean by service, sisterhood, and success; since they are the foundation of everything we do:
Maya Angelou once said “I have found that among its other benefits, giving liberates the soul of the giver.” We couldn’t agree more, which is why service is a cornerstone of TBPP, and everything we do is rooted in empowering and uplifting our communities. With global expansion in mind, we’ve developed effective, scaleable models for community service initiatives that allow us to continue adding cities to our ever growing list of service areas, which in turn allows us to impact more and more communities as time goes on. We also regularly partner with other local and national organizations that share our passion for service.
Founded by successful women, to push successful women, we're here to ensure our sisters reach their full potential. Whether your'e looking for mentorship during your pursuit of higher education, guidance in climbing the corporate ladder, or assistance in your own entrepreneurial venture, we've created a network of empowered women to coach you along the way to greatness! TBPP has formed partnerships with established thought leaders and respected organizations to develop ongoing workshops, networking opportunities, and educational programs that seek to directly empower WOC on their journey to success.
No one should have to navigate life feeling as if they’re going it alone; that’s why we believe sisterhood is so important. Every single TBPP event aims to create a loving and supportive environment that is welcoming and judgement-free - an environment where we can build genuine and meaningful friendships. While we encourage undying self-love and respecting the things that make each of us unique, we do not believe in creating dividing lines based on our differences (complexion, religious beliefs, views on sexuality, level of education, etc.). Instead, we choose to focus on the things that unite us and bring us closer together.
We encourage you to put yourself first when necessary, as we can be no good to others if we’re no good to ourselves. Since it is the sum of the parts that make the whole, we believe that self care should be applied to every aspect of your being, especially the physical, mental, spiritual, and professional. With that in mind, we host events and workshops that are specifically geared towards building and strengthening those aspects, so that you can become the best possible version of yourself. We want to help you find your light so that you can shine it on the world. We want you to shine bright like a...never mind.
