Enhancing The Consciousness, Education And Rights Of Black Women In Manitoba.




About Us

Who We Are?

Forged from a common heritage, common struggles, and a common endeavor, and recognizing that self-respect and self-esteem are important to the development of our people, the Congress of Black Women of Manitoba Inc is a non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing the awareness, education and rights of Black Women and their families in Manitoba. This is done through the delivery of programs and projects, informed by meaningful dialogue and geared to serve the needs, hopes and aspirations of Black Women and their families.

Upcoming Events

We present a variety of events that improve understanding and help attendees become better allies as we celebrate the diversity that characterizes the Manitoban.

We are dedicated to raising awareness and promoting the role and contribution of Black women in our community and their right to live and develop fully in society. Networking and professional development events provide Black women with opportunities to enhance their knowledge and connect with other women in the community.

To abide by provincial and regional health regulations in response to COVID-19 the Congress of Black Women of Manitoba presents all events virtually using the Zoom platform. Please note that this is subject to change as regulations change. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the event. Please log in 5 minutes before the session starts.
