African Diaspora Economic Inclusion Foundation.

We contribute to reducing the economic inequalities impacting the UK’s African Diaspora community with a specific focus on Black female entrepreneurs.

About ADEIF

The African Diaspora Economic Inclusion Foundation (ADEIF) is a non-profit organization that works with those who believe, as we do; that to tackle inequalities, there needs to be a collaboration where we can leverage our individual strengths and expertise for a purpose greater than ourselves.

Together we address exclusion. Tackling the issues preventing African Diaspora professionals from participating equally in society and sourcing the economic tools enabling them to shape their own lives. This makes self-determination possible (or: viable)

Our contribution to the global race to equality

 We invest in three key areas that together enable equity (or: equality).

Providing financial support to Black female entrepreneurs and business owners.
The facilitation of dynamic links between individuals and organisations who want to play a greater role in providing sponsorship or pro bono support for Black female entrepreneurs.
Hosting virtual and in person events to upskill and educate on opportunities that can accelerate economic growth and generational wealth for entrepreneurs and professionals working within corporations or public section organizations.

Why focus on Black female entrepreneurs?

If women and men participated equally as entrepreneurs, global GDP could rise by 3-6%, boosting the global economy by trillion (BCG, 2019)

 

When women work, they invest 90% of their income back into their families, $2.5-$5 compared with 35% for men (Clinton Global initiative)

Lack of access to finance, funding and network are consistent challenges affecting women business owners. These issues are exacerbated for Black women who face exclusion because of both gender and race. This is not being adequately addressed at a government policy or financial institutional level.

 

 

Realising our vision for a better, more equitable society comes with challenges, so we build long-term partnerships with like-minded stakeholders to ensure whatever challenges are faced, we face them together.

Joining us means you too can help close the gender and race equality gap that consistently hinders economic growth and prosperity for all.
