Our goal is not only to increase the number of underrepresented minority women in the healthcare field, but also to make sure the next generation of Black and Hispanic providers are supported at every step of the way.
From humble beginnings as a personal vlog on YouTube back in 2016, Black Girl White Coat has blossomed into a nationally recognized 501(c)3 nonprofit organization with its audience tuning in across all social media platforms.
Our goal is to diversify the face of healthcare by providing exposure and support to students traditionally underrepresented in these career fields. More specifically, Black Girl White Coat exists to provide academic resources, mentorship, and scholarship to Black and Hispanic women pursuing careers in healthcare. We know that there are many barriers and obstacles underrepresented students have to overcome when considering this path, so we create programs, promote platforms, and offer opportunities that will help the student in need. The challenges do not stop with admission or entry because there is so much more support needed every step of the way and with every new transition. We get it because we have been there! Black Girl White Coat is committed to getting our students and scholars going in the right direction and equipping them with the tools needed to succeed.
Mentors are welcome to join the Black Girl White Coat Mentor Network year-round. We are always in need of mentors and allies who are willing to volunteer their time to help Black and Hispanic students.
Black Girl White Coat understands the financial burden that comes with pursuing higher education, so we do what we can to lend a helping hand. Visit our scholarship page to learn more about current and/or future scholarships offered.
