MEET OUR FOUNDER & EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
Evangeline Chima

 

Evangeline Chima is the founder of Black Mentorship Inc. BMI – an organization dedicated to fostering the professional growth and personal expansion of Black professionals.

BMI was born out of her personal experiences as a Black professional woman in Canada. Despite holding a master’s degree in Information Technology Services, diplomas in Computer Network, Project Management, and Business Analysis, as well as numerous professional certifications, she felt unheard in business.

She experienced bias, was overlooked for promotions, leading to the frustration of being unable to achieve her true potential – regardless of her work commitment or qualifications.

Importantly, she realized that she was not alone and that she was surrounded by powerful, dynamic, talented Black professionals and entrepreneurs – also facing the same career challenges.

She took action and created BMI to inspire, support, and mentor Black professionals to fulfill their potential, to build community, and to promote change.

As part of her work, Evangeline helps organizations to create exceptional atmospheres where everyone thrives.

She is also a devoted wife and mother of four boys.
