The Black Chamber of Arizona (BCAZ) created the Women of Color Business Collaborative (WOCBC) as part of its core commitment to business development, in particular, women-owned businesses.


We support the growth and development of BCAZ businesses and individual members by leveraging our role as a regional organization, by providing technical assistance and leadership training to our members, and by sharing best practices and industry data among our members.

We accomplish these activities through various mechanisms, including face-to-face training, web-based tools, coaching, peer networking, and informational products.

To help women of color throughout Arizona collaborate to take their business to new levels of success. Our goal is to make the annual Women of Color Business Collaborative Conference the premier business conference in Arizona that addresses the needs of these business owners.
