What is JollofPie?

Jollof rice is an iconic African dish that is made with long-grain rice, spices, and vegetables (several different ingredients) in a single pot. It is a popular dish in West Africa.

It was first cooked in the Gambia region of West Africa during the 14th – 16th century in the ancient Jolof (Wolof) Empire. Known as the “Grain Coast,” This region was a hub for the transatlantic slave trade that captured Africans who brought their agricultural techniques and rice-influenced dishes to the West.

Although each variation is unique in its own right it is a staple at celebratory social gatherings which has a greater purpose….bringing people together.

About Us

Why do Black Insurance Professionals need this space? We are brothers, mothers, sisters, fathers, sons, wives and husbands. But first we are Black and that reality drives us to secure a legacy for our families and broader community.

The insurance industry is a place of abundance and if made more equitable and opportunities spread evenly, the legacies we desire would be secured. We refuse to wait for the industry to prioritize our communities, so we choose to create our own change, together. 

We are agents, executives, underwriters, claims adjusters, actuaries and more. We work for large multinational corporations and others of us run small businesses. All of us, however, are focused on one thing and that’s coming together to expand opportunities for Black professionals in the industry and in so doing, rebuilding our communities.

JollofPie.com is the place where we come to exchange ideas, forge partnerships, receive and give mentorship, host events and market future opportunities to each other. JollofPie.com is our space, the platform that facilitates us reaching our goals, leveraging our presence in the industry and ultimately, rebuilding Black Wall Streets all over the nation.
