ABOUT
The Black Canadian Women Awards is a genuine opportunity for our entire community to celebrate women accomplishments. A rare occasion to have our men, women, young, seniors and institutions all come together to celebrate and give tribute to our lifelong journey.

The annual induction of 100 Role Models will be taken place at this years Black Canadian Women Awards. Since 2013 we have showcased and celebrated role models and achievers within our community. Each achiever will be placed on the prestigious "National Wall of Role Models"

The Black Canadian Queens are women ambassadors uniquely chosen and crowned to a specific city or region with the mandate to execute a few progressive tasks while contributing positively to their communities. This initiative is designed to build confidence, ambition and poise in women. Each candidate is engaged in a few  task oriented activities held to showcase black women from a position of power, integrity and honor. Absolutely not a pageant show but focuses more on the skills, strengths and abilities of young black women.

The Black Women Honors & Empowerment is a global initiative to celebrate, unite and empower women. An opportunity to celebrate our stories, journey and future. Through our local activities we hope to execute over 100 charitable endeavors yearly in Africa, the Caribbean, North America, Europe and the entire world. With over 30 chapters, we are actively building our communities and work to promote more women into politics, business & leadership.

"ADDRESSING BLACK COMMUNITY ISSUES"
Hello Everyone, 
The entire Diversity Advancement Network, several community leaders and our partners are very excited about this great initiative geared towards encouraging people to participate in politics either as candidates or as a responsible individual. We do not support or endorse any party or candidate in the past, present or future. While publishing the Afro-Caribbean News in 2010 we had the opportunity to attend the Filipino Mayoral Forum, Chinese Mayoral Forum and many others, but none was planned for the black community, so we took up the responsibility to organize one and we would be having similar event in other cities. We are looking forward to a more inclusive city and country. 
 
Thank you

Yours Respectfully,
Paul Ade, Executive Director
Diversity Advancement Network
