Evangeline Chima is the founder of Black Mentorship Inc. BMI – an organization dedicated to fostering the professional growth and personal expansion of Black professionals through education, mentorship and skills
building. BMI was born out of her personal experiences with systemic racism and bias as a Black professional woman in Canada. Despite her education, numerous professional certifications, work ethic and commitment, she could not reach her professional aspirations.
Out of these experiences and recognizing Black professionals are underrepresented across industries and in leadership roles, Evangeline created Black Mentorship Inc – (BMI) to inspire, support, and mentor Black professionals to fulfill their potential, build community, and promote change.
Evangeline is vast in Information Technology Services, DEI strategies, Workplace Safety and Wellness Programs. She provides consultation to Sheridan College executives and academic leadership teams on Equity, Diversity & Inclusion.
She is the Sheridan College BLACKS career readiness series co-creator and is the brain behind the recently launched Sheridan College Black Mentorship Program. Evangeline mentors many students and professionals and sits on many Boards and Advisory Table participating in strategic planning towards promoting change and building safe, inclusive and equitable communities.
Evangeline was named one of the 2020 Black women to watch.
