Black Women in Development:

A Global Network


Founded in 2018, the #blackwomenindev global network is a group by and for black women working in international development across the globe. We have grown to a group of nearly 3,000 women globally with large chapters in DC, Nairobi, and Kampala.

This group is a safe space for black women to share jobs, microaggressions, funding opportunities, events, professional development, and to make connections with other black women in our sector!

Once these fees have been paid, we will be in contact with you via email for posting instructions. Finally, it is important to note that all funds collected from job postings will support the coordination + maintenance of our virtual network.
