It’s important to recognize the challenges that women of color face in entrepreneurship and the need for society to #embraceequity. I am very proud of our commitment at FACE to support Black women entrepreneurs. Equitable access to opportunities is necessary for a just and prosperous society; we have to hold space for women and other marginalized groups in their pursuit of economic empowerment. FACE has worked with many inspiring women who have successful businesses that are making economic and social impact. This IWD, let’s focus on breaking down prejudices within our own sphere of influence, so that collectively we can take tangible steps to #EmbraceEquity.
