Join the Minority Business Development Agency’s Enterprising Women of Color Initiative in partnership with the National Minority Supplier Diversity Council, as they present a 4-week virtual event series for women of color entrepreneurs looking to reevaluate their business strategies. During this virtual event series, they will also have resource providers on hand to share valuable information on navigating new opportunities to help you formulate your COMEBACK strategy.
We know this is a difficult time for everyone, especially business owners. Part of that difficulty is not being able to see past our circumstances, how to shift our focus, and move forward. MBDA has curated this series as a way to bring together a community of women entrepreneurs and resource providers to share ideas and new perspectives because we are all in this together. Our hope is that you will walk away with a refreshed plan of action and inspired to move forward in the wake of this monumental pivot.
