Black Country Women in Leadership

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

Our Aim

We aim to deliver high-quality events each year that support the network's objectives and provide a 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

Details of and invites to events will be sent to all members via email and listed on the Black Country Chamber's events pages.

Network Structure

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. A Chair of the steering group is appointed from within-group and their role is to ensure that the network acts in accordance with its aims and objectives and direct the activities of the network.
