Boss Women Media’s Black Girl Magic Digital Summit is returning for its fourth consecutive year of programming and is set to premiere on Saturday, August 27 on Prime Video. The digital summit aims to educate, empower and equip Black women, and will celebrate and support thousands of global attendees, including a network of corporate professionals, entrepreneurs and student changemakers.
The programming, a Boss Women Media production, was pre-recorded in Los Angeles in late July at Brigid Coulter’s Blackbird House. Female students from Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) across the country, as well as professional leaders in an array of industries, joined in person at Blackbird House as the live audience. The women in attendance were able to meet with speakers and influencers, as well as network with each other, allowing for a day full of connections and conversations.
“We are on a mission to provide Black women with the tools and education they need to take the next steps toward having more,” said Marty McDonald, Founder and CEO of Boss Women Media. “The Black Girl Magic Digital Summit is a pivotal part of this mission as it gives us the stage and presence to amplify critical conversations and poignant messages. We are honored to have partnered with Capital One again for this year’s digital summit. Their team has been a steadfast ally over the years, and we can’t wait to see the magic from this digital summit reach more Black women than ever before.”
Key speakers for this year’s digital summit include Allyson Felix, Meena Harris, Aurora James, Meagan Good, and more. Boss Women Media also partnered with Tai Beauchamp, Lady Jade, Codie Oliver, and Mattie James as Brand Ambassadors for this important initiative. Each of these influential women will be hosting watch parties in their respective cities (Los Angeles, Dallas, Atlanta) to promote the premiere of the digital summit and support Black women in their communities.
