TTPC is a membership-based organization that provides a safe space for BIPOC women to grow and share alongside like-minded and women similarly situated professionally and personally, but it is also creating opportunities for BIPOC women to be educated on topics that are crucial to their growth and wellbeing. TTPC programming is designed almost completely by crowdsourcing what its members need and want. Our intimate group setting and eye towards providing every member with an opportunity to connect and learn in a self-directed and schedule-friendly way is why TTPC is revolutionizing how the market provides networking opportunities for BIPOC women.
About The Founder
Janine Nicole Dennis
CIO and Founder, Talent Think Innovations
Janine is the Owner/Chief Innovations Officer for Talent Think Innovations, LLC, a business strategy and management consulting firm. Her career spans over fifteen years in Business and HR that has taken her through the world of pharmaceuticals, K-12 education, technology, private equity, healthcare, staffing, and R&D just to name a few sectors she has worked in. Janine is also the Founder of Talent Think Power Circle (TTPC). TTPC has grown into a membership-based organization for women identifying as BIPOC through her leadership and vision for women to have a psychologically and emotionally-safe space to learn, unpack the paradox of color, and grow alongside other women of color who are driven and aligned with a shared purpose.
” Throughout my career, I was either the lone Black Woman on my team or in the company overall. When microaggressions and culturally-insensitive environments started to become my reality, I realized how impactful it was to have those offices and corners where a woman of color always had an open door, a listening ear, and encouraging words so I could continue being the best version of myself. I created TTPC to ensure that professional women of color can have a place where everyone knows their name, celebrates their journey, and supports their healing and growth. What started off as pain in my own life has given birth to something that allows me to ensure women who look like me have the support and resources to navigate a world obsessed with marginalizing us for something none of us can control…our skin color.”
