The previous lists combined have received well over 360,500 views on Slideshare and are presented in alphabetical order. They are intended to acknowledge powerful black women in Europe and to inspire others to reach their full potential. The lists do not aim to assess rank but rather to showcase influential women who, in some cases are well-known and in others, are women who should be known.
This is the 9th year the list contains a call to action to join the Black Women in Europe™ Kiva Lending Team which has 12 members. It is the 7th year that the Power List is dedicated to Derek McCullough, former List creative director, who died in 2015.

Kiva is a non-profit organization with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty. Kiva lets individuals lend as little as $25 to help create opportunity around the world. Our collective efforts will make a difference to an individual, a group, and a community.
