Thu, Oct 29, 2020, 3:30 PM (EDT)

About this event

2020 has been chaos. No need to re-hash the past. Let's take our 2020 lessons learned and have a real, honest, open conversation with six of our region's Black Leaders about how we create new opportunities out of the chaos by focusing on how we can nurture and support our incredible minority entrepreneurs and create a far larger pie for that we can all share.
