The vision of The Exquisite Black Women Foundation, Inc. is to uplift and empower Black Women and Girls to fulfill their purpose despite what they may see around them.
We enforce our mission in many ways, the most popular of which is the An Evening of Excellence Gala . Through this program, we invite the community to nominate Black Women who have been influential in the area where they live or work. From these nominations, the selection committee chooses (9) ladies to become First Ladies of Louisville.
The proceeds from this event help fund our upcoming program year, where we support young black girls from 10th to 12th grade to learn critical life skills as they transition into successful black women. We are working on partnerships with existing female-led black-owned and operated organizations to create our Life Skills curriculum. This includes but is not limited to credit and money management, job readiness, and effective communication in the workplace. Graduating seniors will have access to job shadowing and internship opportunities. Lastly, program graduates will qualify for renewable scholarships and the opportunity to become an Exquisite Young Black Woman.
