Cole Banks, founder of Sisters Traveling Solo, is helping to drive the travel culture for sisters with unmatched global travel experiences. The idea of Sisters Traveling Solo was sparked after Cole read an online post discouraging black women from traveling solo. As a woman of color, the post disturbed Banks who frequently travels around the world solo and she knew she was not alone. Her passion for traveling, solo experiences and wanting to help other sisters led to the creation of the Sisters Traveling Solo.
In 2018, Cole left her corporate job at The Coca-Cola Company to focus on Sisters Traveling Solo full-time when the company began booking more trips than she had vacation days to cover and she was no longer able to balance both. Now, her office can be anywhere she wants it to be as she continues connecting, empowering, inspiring and supporting sisters.
