Progress Center for Black Women: Moves to downtown Madison

MADISON, Wis.—To further its mission of providing education, providing co-working opportunities and promoting sisterhood to Black women, the Progress Center for Black Women is moving from Fitchburg to the Capitol Square in Madison. The new office will be located at 30 W. Mifflin St.

“I look forward to collaborating authentically with Madison’s downtown community,” Sabrina Madison, founder of the Progress Center for Black Women, said. “Our new space and location will give us the opportunity to elevate our reach and help Black women thrive as they transform their lives and families.”

The more than 1,400 square-foot family-friendly office includes a coworking space and will host events, including seminars on financial health, entrepreneurship and leadership.

The new space is set to be finished the week of July 5.

The Progress Center for Black Women was founded in 2017, allowing Madison to expand her efforts to empower Black women and families.

Madison, an award-winning entrepreneur, is also a mother, community organizer, poet and master collaborator. She serves as the chair of the City of Madison’s Economic Development Committee and is on the board of directors for several organizations, including the Overture Center.
