Founder’s Message


The Foundation for Black Women’s Wellness is thrilled to announce our 16th Annual Black Women’s Wellness Day (BWWDAY) on Saturday, September 28th, 2024, returning to the iconic Monona Terrace Community and Convention Center in Madison, WI for another unforgettable experience.


Last year, we broke records with our highest attendance yet, and this year, we are aiming even higher with YOU in mind!

As our most anticipated event of the year, BWWDAY promises to be our most impactful yet as we welcome Michele Lopez and Dash Hudson (our first male keynote speaker)! This curated and awe-inspiring lineup will join speakers and experiences that invite you into a space to live in true transparency and self-reflection for personal growth. Get ready to be empowered like never before!

BWWDAY is a celebration of the beauty, magic, and power of Black women and girls. It is a reminder that we are strong, resilient, and worthy of living our best lives! Join us as we honor the visions of powerful Black womanhood and inspire ourselves and each other to reach new heights.

I can’t wait to see you at BWWDAY, where together, we will create a transformative space that celebrates our collective well-being and sets us on a path to unlimited possibilities!

In Wellness,
