About the Founder/CEO
Dr. Jacqueline King
Dr. Jaqueline King started Black Women Empowered (BWE) in November of 2011. While watching BET's Black Girls Rock and the excitement from the women on Facebook, God spoke to her and said "What happens when the excitement ends?". It was this question that caused Black Women Empowered to be born.
BWE started out with just over 200 women on Facebook and ultimately reached over one million fans on a daily basis. BWE is now using other social media platforms such as Instagram, YouTube, Google Plus, Periscope and Pinterest to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ. By the grace of God, several other social media pages were launched including, Black Women Empowered New Jersey/New York, Black Women Empowered Atlanta, Black Girls Empowered, Black Men Empowered, BWE Live Broadcasts, BWE Encouragement and BWE Obama Family Fan Page.
Dr. King spent almost twenty six years working in various management positions within the largest Electric and Gas utility in New Jersey. She left New Jersey in 2004 and relocated to Greensboro, NC.
