What We Do

Black Pumpss is not just a network —it is a movement. We are empowering and igniting passion and equipping Black women with the tools to elevate themselves and others in wellness, business and leadership. We are coming together to change minds and challenging public, private businesses as well as government offices to "lean in". We are walking in and taking our rightful seats at the tables to create positive change. We are igniting a forum to elevate black women all over the world.

Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success –
Henry Ford.


Our Core work is the establishment of Women Wellness Centers in Africa ("WWCA"). We envision a future where black women in Africa thrive in their career and in health. A future where women are not abused. A future where preventable diseases like HIV/AIDs decline through education and where early detection of breast or uterine cancer. A future where low post natal deaths are the normal.

WWCA will include:

  • Member only state of the art fitness center and spa
  • Conference/Training center
  • World Standard medical wing managed by Board certified medical doctors.

Stride for change – working with government and business to create change for black women worldwide:

Black Pumps is challenging government, public and private companies to "lean in" to black women. We believe in women initiative programs, it's been the best thing for women. However, how is it working for black women or women with African descent in developed nations? Traditional approaches to diversity are not working when it comes to promoting women of color and in particular black women.

Working with businesses and governments in the United States as well as in Africa in order to address and eliminate unconscious bias which will lead to greater retention and promotion of black women in professional fields.

  • Proactive and strategic tools to allow companies to "lean in"
  • Recruiting, retention and promotion of black women
  • Access to executive capital (executive sponsorship)
