Black Country Women in Leadership

Black Country Women in Leadership was established by Black Country Chamber of Commerce in May 2019 to support and celebrate women in senior leadership roles and to help inspire the next generation.

Our Aims

The network provides welcoming environment for Black Country women in business to:

  • Raise the profile of, inspire and promote the achievements of regional women leaders and support the next generation.
  • Meet, share, and discuss views, experiences, or concerns.
  • Provide opportunities for peer networking and information sharing.
  • Address inequalities and strive for parity within the region's business community.

Our Work

We aim to deliver high-quality events each year that support the network's objectives and aims. We have engaged with a range of delegates since the launch of this project and continue to explore more ways of supporting and inspiring the region's current and future women leaders.

Steering Group

The network is operated and developed by a voluntary steering group with administrative and operational support provided by the Black Country Chamber of Commerce.

The Steering Group oversees the running of the network and forms a governing body from within its membership. The Chair of the steering group is Lucy Rook from BlackRook Academy Limited. Her role is to ensure that the network acts in accordance with its aims and objectives and will direct the activities of the network.
