What members are saying

Euphemia Gans, Business Banker, JP Morgan Chase

Meet Akina is a One-Stop shop for all things relating to women of color. Being a member of the sandwich generation where you’re caring for aging relatives yet trying to rear young adult children, one needs resources and Meet Akina were there. Talking to folks about which industries were hiring young talent was there. Lastly, needing to know where local community events were happening to get involved were there. Meet Akina, keeps delivering in every aspect of an active woman’s life!

Kelli Mumphries, Founder & CEO, MilkSpace

As a Black Mom, I can't emphasize enough how essential it is to have a supportive and relatable community. Community is important no matter where you are, and having access to a community that is a direct reflection of me is something I need and cherish at all times. Akina creates a space where I can connect with others who not only look like me but also share the same values while coming from different walks of life. Akina has become a place where I can truly connect, learn, and grow in my roles as a mother, wife, friend, and entrepreneur. Simply put, I am deeply grateful to have access to the Akina community. 

Dr. Melissa Robinson-Brown, Founder Renewed Focus Psychology Services

Akina is revolutionary!  The mission to create a space for black women, regardless of the roles we play, to not only come together and create community, uplift one another, support one another but also to engage in self-improvement, find opportunities for growth professionally and personally, and just have a ton of fun is what we, as black women, deeply need.  The app features the ease of use, the ability to build connections with women all over the world (I think this is true), and the integration of AI is going to change the game for Black women.  And I’m  HERE FOR IT! 

Kirsten Smith, Founder, MotherHues and BabyHues

I am very excited about Akina 2.0! The previous app allowed me to network with other black women in a space where I felt comfortable discussing a variety of topics and supporting other black businesses.
