Founded in March of 2021, The Ambitious Women of Color Association (AWOCA) gives visibility and opportunity to its members through the power of community and connection.  There are several amazing components of the AWOCA.

The Directory

Your one stop shop for hiring and buying from BIPOC womxn and their businesses.  Instead of buying gifts from Bath & Body works, you can buy from an AWOC that makes candles and lotion.  Perhaps you'd rather not have your lady parts looked at by an old White man (no offense to them), you can look for a doctor here.  Or you want a therapist that understands the challenges of what you go through as a person of color in the US.  We got you!

Events

Our events are designed to help like-minded AWOC's connect and be a part of a thriving community of professionals.  While our Ambitious Women of Color Meetup Group is dedicated to more social events and personal development in the Los Angeles area, the events at AWOCA are more focused on business and professional networking.  As the membership grows nationwide, and it becomes safe to do so, we will have amazing events all over the country.

Our Blog

A great resource for members and visitors alike! Our blog will be written by our members and have all kinds of great content to help you live your best life in business, career, and life.

Members Only Forum
