who we are
The BCW Collective is a network of women of color married to and/or dating the Coaches of color in the sports industry. We exist to serve and connect via the establishment of an authentic and intentional community no matter where sports takes us.
COLLECTIVELY WE ARE
and so much more
As WAGS of color and partners of coaches of color, our experience is more than unique. There are some things that everyone just may not understand and we felt a need to create a space just for us. A space where we can relate beyond the surface of the game that initially brings us together, and do life together without reservation. A space where support penetrates our hearts, souls, and life can be done together. So, our support is not dependent on which team you are on for a season, but the foundation of friendships that last a lifetime. It is our mission to provide resources and a safe community for women alike to not only survive, but thrive.

Her goal is to also provide opportunities for significant others to earn income for their household that is not dependent on where the coaching road may lead.
