Barbara Perkins
Sisters at the Well

I am thrilled to share about our Urban Angel of the Day: Barbara Perkins, Founder of Sisters at the Well! Barbara founded Sisters at the Well, Inc. because of her personal desire to be in the company of inspiring women and her commitment to building upon the solid foundation of sisterhood, left by generations of strong black women. Her idea and name was taken directly from the Bible. Barbara believed then and now that when women gather at the metaphoric Well, together they would find answers to questions and solutions to problems.

Barbara Perkins has traveled around the world for over 22 years and shares her positive message of hope and ideas about the collective power of women. She has a unique and extraordinary ability to engage communities, understand issues and manage information. Her reputation as a strategic thinker has gained her access to all levels of government, prestigious boards, policy committees and community groups.

After a 17 year career with American Airlines, the American born, but Caribbean raised woman began her new career as a social entrepreneur. Her journey began with six years of training; undergraduate studies and completing her graduate work at Pacific Oaks College, in Pasadena, California where she is now on faculty.

Currently, Barbara is a sought after Inspirational Speaker, Political Advisor, Life Coach and Author of three books.

As President of Sisters At The Well, Inc. and Friends of Sisters At The Well, Barbara continues to ensure opportunities for women to gather regularly to discuss topics deemed critical to the success of the black family and black community as a whole.

She is also available for speaking engagements, training sessions and retreats.
