Dear Friends,
It’s been 10 years since we launch the International Black Women’s Public Policy Institute in Washington, DC. The late Dr. Dorothy I. Height, Honorable Diane E. Watson, United States Congress (Retired), Honorable, Karen Bass, United States Congress, CA 37th District and Carolyn Webb de Macias, Vice President Emeritus, University of Southern California are among the women who inspired our beginning and supported our growth.

On Wednesday evening, September 12, 2018 at the Embassy of the Republic of Haiti in Washington, DC, IBWPPI will host its 10th Anniversary Awards Gala and Reception under the theme: A Decade of Sustainable Bridge Building. On this special occasion we will recognize the US Ambassador to Haiti, His Excellency, Paul G. Altidor, Albert Smith Jr., Vice President, Toyota Motor North America and Cathy Hughes, American Entrepreneur and Media Maven.

We are planning for a night of celebration and reflection on the past 10 years of growing and sharing the vision of IBWPPI which is to change the world by making life better for women globally through acts of kindness and good public policy. The evening would be complete if you would accept this invitation to join us as one of the Major Sponsors of this event. The three levels of sponsorship offer high visibility and engagement for your company.

IBWPPI is a 501c3 nonprofit organization led by a collective of inter-generational women leaders representing the interests of women in countries throughout the African Diaspora to include, North America, Bahamas, Belize, Bermuda, Cuba, Haiti as well as countries throughout the continent of Africa.

Delegates representing these countries will be among the 200 plus guests making for an exciting evening with an international flare.
