“Black women are powerful leaders who create and sustain change. We’ve seen this across generations - from leading the way on school integration to women’s voting rights to the COVID-19 vaccine. Black women are essential to the prosperity of this nation and must be centered in leadership. This is why The Highland Project was created: to invest in the sustainability, joy, healing, and impact of Black women leaders.”- Gabrielle Wyatt, Founder

The Highland Project Is a long-term strategy to support black women in creating multi-generational wealth and change.

  • Centering, Empowering and Sustaining Black Women Leadership: There is no future prosperity in America without Black women – when Black women win, everyone wins.
  • Redefining Wealth... With Black Women at the Center: Wealth is more than just money. It’s about power, leadership, social mobility, ownership, and justice. It’s about removing any barrier that hinders opportunity.
  • Working Across Generations and Disciplines: No one leader can bring about that scale of change required to close the racial wealth gaps we see today. We must work across disciplines and generations to create multi-generational wealth and change.
