During Black History Month in 2020, we celebrated our inaugural Black Business Empowerment in the city of Tacoma with a group of successful business owners that shared their stories, resource partners who provided technical assistance and the community that came together to support.

This will be a kick-off event for Black History Month (also known as Black-Owned Business Excellence Month) and a host of other workshops and training scheduled for throughout February. This event builds on and extends many efforts to build connections with and between Black-focused business groups and entrepreneurs.

This is a collaborative effort with a host of amazing organizations that support Black-Owned Business Excellence to include the US Small Business Administration, City of Tacoma, Africatown Land and Trust, Urban Impact Seattle, Black Dot, Urban Leagues, Seattle Credit Union, Seattle Public Library, Greater Seattle Business Association, WA Small Business Development Center, Minority Business Diversity Association, Business Impact NW, WA State Microenterprise Association and others. We are hosting an all-day symposium to celebrate, educate and inspire Washington business owners who have been historically underserved.
