Black women should shoot for the stars.

To turn their dreams into a reality, Boss Women Media’s Black Girl Magic Summit returned for its fourth consecutive year.

According to a press release, the summit was created to uplift and celebrate Black women professionals, entrepreneurs, and student changemakers. This year’s summit was pre-recorded in Los Angeles in late July, and is set to air on Aug. 27 on Amazon Prime.

Black women heard topics centering on financial well-being, career development, advancing socioeconomic mobility, small business success, and more led by keynote speakers, including Allyson Felix, Meena Harris, Aurora James, and Meagan Good.

“We are on a mission to provide Black women with the tools and education they need to take the next steps toward having more,” said Marty McDonald, Founder and CEO of Boss Women Media, according to a press release. “The Black Girl Magic Summit is a pivotal part of this mission as it gives us the stage and presence to amplify critical conversations and poignant messages. We are honored to have partnered with Capital One again for this year’s summit. Their team has been a steadfast ally over the years and we can’t wait to see the magic from this summit reach more Black women than ever before.”

In addition, Capital One Business joined Boss Women Media for the third year in a row, honoring their multi-year commitment to invest in underserved communities and businesses while supporting organizations creating financial pathways. A byproduct of the partnership is the Black Girl Magic Summit Pitch Competition. Small-business female-owned applicants will have a chance to qualify for a prize pool of $100,000 in grants. Those interested will have until Aug.12, 2022, to apply.
