Women of Color Need Stronger Business Networks, ASAP. Small businesses need an influx of capital to thrive

When met with hardship, the human psyche responds by reacting, adapting, and recovering. This is especially true for Black and Latinx women entrepreneurs and small-business owners, who are no strangers to experiencing surprises, change, and hard times. Once faced with the global Covid-19 pandemic, we saw these businesses tested, and they adapted and pivoted to survive. Our businesses are continuously tested, and that’s what makes us resilient leaders — skilled at being resourceful, versatile, and creative to the core. It’s this ability to be resourceful even in a crisis that defines our resilience, but that resilient spirit often makes business leaders feel that they have to find a way on their own. No business grows in isolation.”
