When Black Women Lead – A Conversation with Four Powerful Black Women Entrepreneurs

Join us for an hour-long workshop with four powerful black women entrepreneurs. Designed intentionally to celebrate black women leaders in our community, these incredible women will share their unique stories and participate in an uplifting and rich conversation.   

In this session, you’ll hear firsthand how they’ve developed successful businesses and turn to entrepreneurship to address unmet needs in the market, to celebrate their culture and to give back to their communities. They’ll chat about the challenges they’ve faced including barriers to financing, bias and stereotypes, racism, and moving away from hustle culture.
