Let’s stay together and grow.
On the closure of our private network on Ning:
I want to be clear that I am only closing the private social network on the Ning platform. I am not giving up on the original purpose of having a social network dedicated to providing sisters in Europe a safe space, a place to meet friends, network, share information, encourage each other and even do a little business. That mission continues, now via other channels.
Exclusively for black women living in Europe:
If you are a black women living in Europe I invite you to our private group on Facebook for social networking and LinkedIn for professional networking. Both of these groups are the only ones of their kind. Just think of the possibilities! I still believe that it is important for us here in Europe to have our own network as a support system as we deal with daily life in Europe.
For African American women and our sisters around the world:
A need that became apparent after the formation of our network was a platform for sisters outside of Europe to network with sisters in Europe to seek advice, information, and a personal take on life in Europe. For that reason I formed our Facebook group that is open to black women living in and outside of Europe.
Join the private Facebook group for black women in and outside of Europe. This too, is the only group of it’s kind with a focus on linking sisters in Europe with sisters primarily in the US, but also around the world.
Let’s not forget what started it all:
Most importantly the multiple award-winning Black Women in Europe blog (another first) ,the inspiration for the social network, continues and will continue to shine the spotlight on the ordinary and extraordinary lives of black women living and thriving in Europe.
Thank you for your emails and support and I remain excited for the future. Not only mine here in Europe but all of ours.
