Akina was unapologetically founded with an ambitious goal: achieve better health, financial and professional outcomes for black women with a sincere commitment to innovation, education and (global) connectivity.
We do this by providing ACCESS.
You see, Access IS Empowerment and Akina begins with access.
We provide access to the experts, information, tools and resources WE need to not just survive, but thrive. We are pulling together the best and the brightest experts in various industries and leveraging the latest innovations in technology to teach, mentor, and empower Black women no matter where they are or what they might be facing.
Through masterclasses, seminars, workshops, networking events, and even social events (yes, we like to brunch too), we are propelling Black women towards unprecedented heights in their personal and professional lives.
We don’t stop there. Of course we have an app! Akina Connect serves as a digital companion to the enhance the interactive experience and the put access within reach for Black women.
In addition to our education experience, and our digital platform, we are also curating a robust retail experience with retailers from far and wide who are offering our members special VIP benefits. These retailers include black-owned businesses, local and regional retailers and restaurants, and national corporate brands.
