SHEENA COLLIER

In 2020, Sheena founded Boston While Black (BWB), the first membership network for Boston-based Black professionals, entrepreneurs, and students who are seeking connection and community. Through programs, events, and a digital community, BWB connects Black people who are active in their local neighborhoods, working at the most innovative companies, building the businesses of the future, attending the area’s universities, and shaping the culture of the region. Boston While Black is creating a city where Black people want to live and work because they have the spaces, tools, and relationships to find their tribe, grow their network, navigate the city, and have fun.

"Attending this event gave me connections to a black Boston professional body that I have never had before. I left feeling a great sense of pride, being a native black Bostonian. I felt energized to contribute to the change this city needs. Looking forward to attending more events."

"I felt more proud to be Black after attending HTBWB Summit. I'm grateful my company financially supported me in paying for my ticket. My CEO understood how important it was for me to connect with others who looked like me. I hope this is the start of many more HTBWB Summits to come."
