Today, I am joined by a woman whose mission can be encapsulated by three words: consciousness, connection, and community.
Dee Poku-Spalding is an entrepreneur and women’s advocate born in the UK and raised between London and Accra.
She is the founder and CEO of The WIE Suite, a private membership community and peer
learning platform for women in leadership. Its mission is to redefine the way women leaders
achieve success for themselves and for their companies by providing the community and tools
for them to succeed at the highest levels. The WIE suite also helps companies accelerate growth by helping them attract, retain and grow talent.
Back in 2010 Dee also co-founded The WIE Network, pioneering one of the early modern
women’s conferences, in response to the lack of diversity at traditional business forums. And he initiative Black Women Raise works to accelerate the ability of leading black female founders to
raise growth capital, scale up and create pathways for the women behind them.
An innate community builder, Dee has attracted numerous business and cultural leaders to her
platform over the years, from Queen Rania and Nancy Pelosi to Katia Beauchamp (Birchbox)
and Julie Wainwright (The Real Real).
Dee serves on the Board of Directors of the British Academy of Film & Television (BAFTA)
and the Brooklyn Bridge Conservancy and was previously on the Credit Suisse New Markets
Women’s Advisory Board. She is also an advisor to Girl Gaze, Paint Box, The Female Founders
Collective and The Wonder and serves as a contributor to Forbes. Dee holds a Bachelor of
Science degree in Math. She currently lives in Brooklyn with her husband and son.
