WHO WE ARE
BCBG stands for “Black Christian Businesswomen Broup.” I recently read an article on Learnvest.com entitled “Stiletto Networks: These Clubs are Blazing the Business World” and right then I realized that I wanted to create something similar for Christian businesswomen. So I started asking around. Who was interested? I got a very telling response.
Only BLACK Christian businesswomen responded. Talk about niche of niches!
So I further narrowed my vision to cater to the demographic that needed it most.
BCBG is your one-stop shop for intelligent, uplifting business networking and if you are a BCBG, then we’d love to have you!
What Our Mission Is
Our mission is to:
We believe in doing ALL things in excellence and serving each other and, in turn, the world, with our marketplace gifts.
And although the resources we share may not always be from black women, Christians, or women, the vast majority will be in order to help boost our thrice-shared sisterhood.
Why We Focus on BLACK Christian Businesswomen
As alluded to in the “Finding Your Niche” blogpost, when I initially set out to create this stiletto club, it was meant for all Christian women. Yet when the responses started rolling in, over 80% of the interested parties were black Christian businesswomen.
I realized that my niche had narrowed itself without any prior intention of mine so I knew that I should service this particular need. And being a BCBG myself, I know firsthand the necessity of it.
Some may feel slighted by this action and that is certainly not my intention. Yet I find that when we narrow our niche in business as much as possible, we discover a specific need that needs fixing or a gap that needs filling which means that we will find specific people who will be interested in the services, products, etc. we can provide them.
What We Do
BCBG holds monthly gatherings in the form of tele-seminars also known as conference calls for the easy participation of all ladies involved. This easy tele-seminar method makes our gatherings easily accessible to women across the nation, spanning various time zones without the necessity of getting dolled up, doing face-time, or spending gas money.
Each gathering will host a different topic and at the end, we’ll open up the lines for Q&A.
There will also be a weekly newsletter sent out which consists of great information, resources, event announcements, and more!
We also have Facebook and LinkedIn group forums that are accessible 24/7!
