Advocate for Underserved Communities; CEO of Hope, Dream, Believe & Achieve; Mother of Kevin Durant
Wanda Durant, affectionately known as Mama Durant, and “The Real MVP” is a strong leader, advocate, entrepreneur and philanthropist. Her passion is to inspire underserved children, single mothers and communities to move beyond their immediate circumstances and to aim for higher heights in life.
Mama Durant is the mother of two sons: businessman, Anthony (Tony) Durant; and National Basketball Association (NBA) Champion and 2017 Finals MVP player, Kevin Durant. After fulfilling her most precious role as a mother and a 20 year career, Wanda became overwhelmed with a long-ignored desire to find her purpose. Her dream was realized when she created Hope, Dream Believe and Achieve (HDBA, LLC) where she is the president and CEO of this motivation platform. Through HDBA, Wanda shares her blueprint for parenting that she used to help her children become successful adults. She also emphasizes to the youth the importance of them becoming global citizens and cultural diplomats.
Wanda’s philanthropic outreach is realized via her time and support to The Kevin Durant Charity Foundation, and other non-profits including Single Parents Support Network, Baller Moms, Positive Tomorrows, The Boys & Girls Club of America and Mothers of Professional Basketball Players. Wanda recently launched her own non-profit entity, Wanda Durant The Real MVP™ Charity, Inc.
As a fiery speaker, Wanda has addressed corporate, non-profit, financial, community organizations, faith-based forums, college campuses and youth audiences. One of Wanda’s mantras is “where there is hope there are possibilities”. She has also been the keynote speaker for diverse audiences such as J. P. Morgan Chase, the Ford Foundation, The White House United State of Women Summit, Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Annual Legislative Conference, NBA Cares and others. She has been featured in national and international media on CNN, Access Hollywood, ESPN, Fox Sports, NBC, Comcast Sports, ABC and CBS, Good Morning America, The Wendy Williams Show, The Today Show, amongst many others.
Wanda recently shared her life story, in the movie “The Real MVP: The Wanda Durant Story” produced by musical artist, television producer and actress Queen Latifah (Dana Owens).
