During the Summer of 2020, two friends, Merline Saintil and Robin Washington, were among a few Black women who sat on corporate boards. They believed corporate diversity starts at the top, and they took on the historically white male-dominated space of America’s board rooms. Merline and Robin invited 18 women to a zoom happy hour to hatch a plan. Then, 18 months and 200 Black women later, they ignited a global movement that re-tools the boardroom’s age-old board member process and increased the presence of Black women on the boards of public and private companies, changing the landscape and thinking of Corporate America and the aspirations for generations of young women of color to come.
