The Forum Impact Event: A Conversation with Tia Upshaw

Join The Forum's CEO, Paulina Cameron, as she engages in an inspiring conversation about mentorship with CEO and Founder of Canadian Blk Women in Excellence (BWIE), Tia Upshaw. Tia's passion for mentorship led her to create BWIE - a non-profit that provides Black women in Atlantic Canada with the support she couldn't find as she began her entrepreneurial journey. Since 2020, Tia's organization has launched workshops, seminars, mentorship initiatives, and more to help Black women entrepreneurs overcome the barriers that prevent them from succeeding. Interested in supporting or connecting? You can reach Tia through...

"Tia genuinely loves to support black women in business. I know this because my first encounter with her was truly genuine. She promoted my business by reposting a poster of mine without having ever spoken to me, knowing that she had no personal gain and that, to me, is a true example of selflessness. 

She pushes her ladies (mentees) with tough love and celebrates their wins; big and small and as a mentee, I truly appreciate her coaching style."
