, President, League of Black Women
Chicago, IL USA

Sandra Finley is President of the League of Black Women, a national strategic research, education and leadership organization that empowers professional Black women aspiring to distinctive leadership in their workplaces, communities and businesses.

Sandra’s focus is on helping Black women achieve their leadership goals unencumbered by historical biases and artificial barriers. Her vision of modern-day, global Black women has ignited an urgency around ensuring that their collective social and business intelligence rises above the social discourse to directly and favorably influence policies and programs, and eliminate barriers to personal and professional growth.

Under Sandra’s leadership, the League of Black Women has become the preeminent resource for research, perspectives and data that is specific to and authenticated by Black women.

The League’s 9th annual conference, Black Women 2012 – New World Power: Bringing You the Global Leadership Power of Tomorrow’s Jobs Today, will be held May 8-11 at the Grand Sandestin Resort, Destin, Fla.
