“The National Women’s Business Council (NWBC) unveiled a new report today detailing the struggle faced by many black women business owners and offering a roadmap of solutions to help the next generation of black women entrepreneurs. Black Women Entrepreneurs: Past and Present Conditions of Black Women’s Business Ownership, prepared for NWBC and the Small Business Administration (SBA) Office of Advocacy by Walker’s Legacy, a global women-in-business collective, details the findings of black women business owners who participated in three research events earlier this year…”
The report provides a brief historical sketch and also outlines key motivations, barriers, and challenges for black women entrepreneurs.
I had the honor of not only serving as a consulting researcher on this report but also working with a wonderful group of amazing Black women and the Walker’s Legacy staff on this important work.
