Black Business Directory Access
We did the "college-graduate" thing.
We did the "corporate job" thing.
Studies show, Women and Black & Brown talent in corporate America face countless challenges.
Many of them flee the corporate chaos to start their own businesses, but often have trouble getting the word out.
By amplifying Black & Women-Owned businesses, we will create more pathways to increase ownership, income and Black wealth.
