TOWNHALL RECAPS

Join BLACK ENTERPRISE for the most powerful conversation on Black financial empowerment today

The pandemic has intensified long-standing inequities that continue to make it challenging for Black-owned businesses to endure this ongoing crisis and gain pathways for recovery. Despite the wave of announced corporate commitments and government initiatives designed to bolster Black business over the past year, African American-owned companies, large and small, still grapple with a lack of capital access, business-building relationships, and growth opportunities. As such, financing and procurement opportunities must be expanded and accelerated to launch, scale, and sustain their enterprises.

 

Join Black Enterprise for a roundtable discussion about the tools, tips, and strategies Black women need to access the table of power. This panel of high-powered corporate leaders will share their career journeys and how they’ve positioned themselves to advance to the C-suite, sit on corporate boards, and become decision-makers in their respective jobs and industries. You’ll also gain critical takeaways on how to earn and leverage respect, influence, and resources to make a tactical impact at work or in your business.

Our latest installment of the groundbreaking Black Enterprise Town Hall series on Sept. 9 focuses on opportunities to close the racial wealth gap impacting Black America: “Homeownership & Wealth Building: Creating Pathways to Lasting Black Prosperity.
In the wake of more than 70 Black business leaders publicly challenging corporate America to take a stand against the campaign to pass voter suppression legislation across the country, we bring together top executives and voting rights activists who are engaged in the latest battle to protect our franchise. The session will focus on what corporations must do to demonstrate clear and continuing allyship with those fighting for the voting rights of Black people, consistent with their public pledges in support of economic equity and racial justice. It will also address what we can do to hold those corporations accountable for their actions—or lack thereof—on this fundamental issue of diversity, equity, and inclusion.

In response to the brutal killing of George Floyd and the global unrest in its aftermath, corporate America has been challenged to confront systemic racism in the workplace as well as society as a whole. This session will focus on measures for Black advancement based on the series of corporate pledges to deal with past racial inequities. The initiatives include providing more opportunities for Black professionals in the workplace; increasing capital and procurement opportunities for Black-owned businesses; and ensuring corporate accountability to this renewed focus on diversity, equity and inclusion.
