Black Women in Europe™: Power List 2018 – A List of Our Own©

  1. 1. In 2010 the Black Women in Europe™ Blog released its first Power List naming 58 women across Europe in 6 categories. This year we feature 9. The 2018 awardees are in the following categories: Activism, Education, Entrepreneurship, Media, Politics, Society and Writing. This list, presented in alphabetical order, is intended to acknowledge powerful black women in Europe and to inspire others to reach their full potential.
  2. 2. What constitutes power? Power is defined as the ability to act or produce an effect. Methodology: The Power List does not aim to assess rank but rather to showcase influential women who, in some cases well known and in others, are women who should be known.
