Business Ownership and Economic Mobility: Banking on Arkansas’ Black Women

Small businesses play a large role in the American economy. Moreover, business ownership can serve as a wealth-building tool for women. Black women are the fastest growing group of small business owners in the nation.
Join us as we explore this trend, systemic barriers to black women’s economic mobility, and black women business owners’ potential to impact local economies and support the economic health and vitality of both rural and urban communities.
We invite grant-makers, policy influencers, practitioners, and the business community to this conversation on how to intentionally support entrepreneurial women build wealth through business ownership. Participation in this event is free; however, registration is required by Thursday, March 7th, as space is limited.
