Who’s on this episode

After working over two decades in the Human Resources industry, as a Talent Acquisition professional, Sherry desired to utilise her experience differently. When she transitioned to becoming a career coach, she discovered a new passion for helping people strive for career success, specifically Black women.

Sherry was inspired to create an online forum due to the lack of access to other professional black women while seeing a mentor for herself. She established a LinkedIn Group and named it Black Career Women’s Network to connect with other black women and obtain career advice.

With her newfound passion, she decided to expand Black Career Women’s Network offline into a national organisation to include resources, a coaching program, mentors and Coaches to develop its members further and provide exclusive support.
