Get Your Money Up, Sis! Black Women Invest Wants To Help 1M Black Women Achieve Wealth
Local chapters of Black Women Invest meet to discuss financial topics like crypto, stocks, real estate, entrepreneurship, and retirement.
A community of over 13,000 Black women investors is on a mission to help Black women achieve wealth.
Black Women Invest (BWI) provides the support and resources needed to step into the world of investing. According to BWI’s website, the sisterhood, founded by Schelo Doirin, is committed to helping one million Black women become strong investors with access to various educational tools. The community meets monthly through local chapters to discuss financial topics like crypto, stocks, real estate, business, entrepreneurship, retirement planning, and more.
According to KGTV, BWI has made its mark in Southern California.
“A lot of Black families were never exposed to financial education and instruments for building their wealth,” says Samonae Carter, the Southern California Chapter president for Black Women Invest. Carter’s chapter consists of a few dozen women who meet biweekly to learn about financial literacy.
On Oct. 2, BWI launched its new accelerator program. The six-week investment course teaches the foundations of investing, mastering the stock market, and building a portfolio. Members can take advantage of exclusive small-group coaching as they venture through the course.
BWI’s Accelerator Program includes:
- Stock and index fund training
- Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) training
- Investment Worksheet to track and manage your investments
- Downloadable Stock Market Investment Planner
- Black Women Invest Online Course curriculum
- Accountability Partner for support
- Weekly Live Group Coaching Calls
Participants of the BWI community have branched off to start their own groups.
The community of women announced the launch of its Washington, D.C., chapter on Sept. 18.
“We are extremely excited to continue connecting with the beautiful Black women in Washington, D.C., who want to learn, grow, and build generational wealth together!,” the wealth-building community wrote on Instagram. The D.C. chapter celebrated its launch with a brunch.
