Color of COVID

April 27 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm CDT

Dallas leaders discuss pandemic-related business challenges for POC, and we spotlight local small businesses that are surviving & thriving!

The pandemic has created unprecedented challenges for all small business owners, yet people of color have been disproportionately affected by COVID, in both health and wealth. In this panel, a diverse group of Dallas-area leaders will discuss the challenges and economic impact felt by people of color, offering both guidance and inspiration.

We will also spotlight small business owners and hear their stories of how they have dealt with the crisis. All have worked hard to survive, despite the extreme challenges of these difficult times. Some entrepreneurs pivoted their product line or began offering different services. Some persevered by taking their business online, while others changed their way of doing business. Be inspired by those who are thriving despite the pandemic!

Key takeaways:

  • stories of businesses that have grown stronger during the pandemic
  • introductions to diverse local business leaders
  • insights on local guidelines and best practices
  • inspiration for you and your business to survive and thrive!
