Who We Are
We are three Black women of Caribbean descent – an attorney with a background in Human Resources, a diversity equity & inclusion executive, and a psychologist. We boast a combined 40 plus years of experience in employee relations, human resources, cultural competence, diversity and inclusion, recruiting, and, retaining employees. We have produced successful results for global and smaller scale entities alike.
Why Choose Us?
We address racial and cultural diversity by addressing the root cause of racial and cultural homogeneity – anti-Blackness. If your diversity equity and inclusion programs regarding racial and cultural diversity have fallen short and missed the mark, we are here to help.
Our job board is not only specialized, it is effective. Our job board helps job seekers find careers within organizations that are committed to working toward improving racial equity, and to creating environments where employees experience a true sense of belonging. Our smaller size allows us to serve you in ways that larger boards simply cannot.
Our job board addresses issues that are unique to Black job seekers, including:
- Black job seekers failing to apply for jobs due to fear of rejection due to race;
- Black job seekers failing to apply for jobs due to fear of organizational culture as it pertains to issues of race; and,
- Black job seekers “whitening” their resume
Our job board allows Black talent to put these concerns to the side, and focus on showcasing their accomplishments.
In short, our job board encourages quality Black talent to not only apply for positions, but also, to bring our full, authentic selves to hiring organizations at the start of the hiring process.
All jobs on our site are from employers who are committed to combating racial injustice, inside, and outside of the workplace.
We never copy job postings from other job boards! Instead, all of our job postings are a result of relationships that we build with employers.
In addition to the jobs on our board, recruiters and hiring managers rely on our candidate database to fill open positions, even if they don’t advertise those positions on our board.
Those in the know, know that jobs openings are filled in many ways, including via the use of talent acquisition specialists within organizations who look for qualified candidates.
If you are a job seeker, we encourage you to browse and apply to the jobs that are posted on our site. And, we encourage you to post your resume so that employers may find you.
We compliment our job board by providing complete diversity services to employers.
The end results are environments where Black employees flourish by letting their full, authentic selves shine.
Our job board is free to job seekers. Search for jobs and upload your resume today!
We are at an unprecedented juncture in history, one that affords us the opportunity to do the necessary work to bring about equity, to heal, to unify, to build, and, to grow.
For organizations, this means addressing issues such as the:
- 58% of Black employees who have experienced racism in the workplace;
- 40% of Black employees who feel like outsiders at work;
- 38% of Black employees who need to compromise their authenticity to fit in to the workplace
To that end, Black Belonging Matters offers the following services:

Unconscious Bias Training – Led by a psychologist, these racial and cultural sensitivity trainings are custom tailored to each organization to ensure success.

Race & Cultural Liaison – Complements your internal HR services. This service is led by an attorney and supported by a Master’s level social worker, we provide skilled third-party intermediaries between organizations and employees, so as to encourage open, meaningful, transformational dialogue on issues related to race and culture.
Addressing the Black experience benefits more than just Black employees. It is also the starting point of any sincere diversity initiative, because racial and cultural homogeneity in the workforce is rooted in anti-Blackness.
