Soul Purpose 360 CEO named Finalist in the
Women Changing The World Awards

Palma Black of Soul Purpose 360 has been selected as a finalist for the 2024 Women Changing the World Awards.

The Women Changing the World Awards presented by Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York and Oprah Winfrey’s all-time favourite guest, Dr. Tererai Trent, celebrate and recognize women achieving outstanding success in areas such as sustainability, humanitarian work, leadership, advocacy, tech, product development, education, health, and innovation. The awards are designed to recognize the growing number of women who are leading the way in making the world a better place for us all and inspire other women to answer the call to take action.


Dr. Trent explains, “These exceptional women are here to awaken hearts, give permission to recapture dreams and inspire the women of the world to come together to forge a brighter path for all. The rising of women is the awakening of everybody.”

Palma is a community development professional of 30 years, a personal performance coach and founder & CEO of Soul Purpose 360, a social enterprise helping Black and minoritised women overcome personal obstacles and challenges and supporting them to contribute to their communities through their own personal growth.  Soul Purpose 360 is a member-led coaching and mentoring social enterprise, committed to cultivating the personal and community leadership qualities in Black and minoritised women. Their mission is to motivate, inspire and imbue confidence in women to enable them to contribute positively to their communities through their own personal growth. They do this by blending personal development with community development.

This work is so important because after surviving racism and domestic violence, poverty and struggles as a single mum, being undervalued, and frustrated in her job in social housing where she felt blocked in her desire to be positively impactful in the lives of the residents, Palma began searching for her purpose in life. In 2015, she took redundancy to spend time with her sister who had terminal cancer, and to figure stuff out for herself. Her sister Pauline had developed stress-related cancer.  It set a fire in her to organise an event about confidence for girls and women. Unfortunately, Pauline died before the event could be realised and, in her grief, Palma cancelled it.  Pauline’s life story and her own experiences, inspired Palma to establish Soul Purpose 360.

Dr. Trent’s vision for these awards is to empower women everywhere to reclaim their sacred dreams and call on women across the globe to unite and pave the way towards a better future for all.

It can be challenging to create change in the world and Palma gives this advice for others thinking about following their calling to make a difference: “We only pass this way once – finding our soul purpose and living a life fulfilled is achievable for everyone and is especially important for Black women. What else is there to do, but to give of self.”

Palma is proud of her achievements, in the last 12 months she has grown the social enterprise whilst working long hours alongside her full-time job in housing development, growing the membership to over 2000 women across the globe, coached and mentored tens of women and secured over £250k in funding and attributes this success to her passion and drive to create impact in the lives of women in her network and also the members of her network who share her vision by setting up local groups in their community.

Palma is committed to continuing to make an impact through her work and her vision for the future is to see a local Soul Purpose 360 group in every town and city across the globe where members want them, creating a global movement of women changemakers, and through the campaign Definition Redefined, Palma hopes to change the negative narrative of Black women that has caused untold harm and loss of life for Black women for hundreds of years by empowering Black women to advocate for self and others.
