Women of Color Business Summit
October 14 | 10 AM-1 PM

Early bird registration open through August 30!

Women--especially Black and Latinx women--have been profoundly impacted by the economic fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic. But amidst this alarming economic "she-cession," we are seizing this moment of national reflection as an opportunity to reexamine our lives and turn toward our dreams of entrepreneurship; whether that be launching a new business or growing an existing one. Rather than seeing this downturn turn as the end, we see it as the beginning. This is our time to grow. It’s YOUR time.

Women of Color Business Summit

October 14, 2021 | 10:00 AM-1:00 PM

The Women of Color Business Summit was established to focus on the development, success, and highlights of women of color entrepreneurs and business leaders, who have been most impacted by COVID-19. Developed by and for women of  color, the summit provides a space and opportunity to address the unique challenges, concerns, and issues facing one of today’s fastest-growing--yet least supported--groups of entrepreneurs and business leaders. Our goal is to leave attendees with expanded networks and practical tools to help them succeed in their business endeavors and strengthen their communities.
