About Conference


The Black Women’s Wellness Conference (BWWC) was established in 2016 in New Orleans,
Louisiana to promote mental health and wellbeing in Black women. At the BWWC,
we believe that Black women who have healthy minds, bodies, and spirits can have healthy ties
to their communities. T.I.E.S. represents four core values: 

We believe that Black women’s lived experiences are valid sources
of knowledge and meaning.


Black women’s lives matter! We believe that when we give ourselves permission to live
unapologetically, we inspire others to do the same.


We believe that when Black women uplift and build one another up, we are powerful.


We believe that it is not the individual responsibility of Black women alone to serve
but rather a collective responsibility of the whole community.
