My decision to move the private Black Women in Europe™ Social Network off of Ning and into two private groups on Facebook and one on LinkedIn was bittersweet. The thought of moving something you created out of personal need and social commitment and built up to over 900 members was sad. What if I loose members? But then again, what if I get more members? What if we grow and enable ourselves to prop each other up even higher? Can I do this all alone? Of course not. But it needed at least one other sister in Europe to step up and say,
“My role here will come as a support of Adrianne’s amazing work”.
Well not exactly that but that is indeed what Laura Bazile, Events professional, fellow sister in Europe, and generous soul said after the announcement was made. She volunteered to be a Facebook group administrator (for sisters in Europe, and sisters on both sides of the Atlantic) even with her busy life running her own business in France and the UK. Yay! I said. And thank you. Laura is a giver (like me). She faithfully writes a Sisters Sharing Knowledge series for the Black Women in Europe™ Blog where she gives professional insights into her work. She describes herself as addicted to travelling, meeting & helping people (I can vouch for that), a blogger, and founder of |SocialRendezvous©| a blog by Laura Bazile. She is a consultant @blufreelance_ (
Merci beaucoup Laura! Cheers. I am very grateful for your support! I thank you and our network thanks you.
