Evangeline Chima is the founder of Black Mentorship Inc. BMI – an organization dedicated to fostering the professional growth and personal expansion of Black professionals.
BMI was born out of her personal experiences as a Black professional woman in Canada. Despite having a master’s degree in Information Technology Services, diplomas in Computer Network, Project Management, and Business Analysis – along with numerous professional certifications, she was unable to be heard in business.
She experienced bias, being overlooked for promotions, and the frustration of being unable to achieve her true potential– regardless of her work commitment or qualifications. Importantly, she realized that she wasn’t alone...that all around herwere powerful, dynamic, talented Black professionals and entrepreneurs – also experiencing the same career challenges.
Being a woman of action, she created BMI to inspire, support, and mentor Black professionals to fulfill their potential, to build community, and to promote change. As part of her work, Evangeline helps organizations to create exceptional atmospheres where everyone thrives.
Evangeline has been named one of Black women to watch and she is nominated for Women of Inspiration award. She is a proven community leader with a “tall” ambition of diversifying the leadership landscape.
Her dream is to see every Black professional shine and reach their full potential. She’s also a devoted wife & mother of four boys!
