The COVID-19 pandemic has had an immense and disproportionate impact on historically underrepresented groups and has amplified systemic challenges like racism and gender inequality. These challenges have been experienced by many small businesses and entrepreneurs that identify as part of these groups.
In this session, a panel of entrepreneurs and business advocates will share the impact the pandemic has had on small businesses within their community, as well as their perspective on what an inclusive economic recovery looks like. Their stories will shed light on how we can each respond as an ally to the businesses, organizations and people around us.
This event is part of the Enlightened Economy Summit 2021 Event Series, which brings together people from a variety of backgrounds and experiences with one thing in common — a desire to make a positive impact in their community. Regardless of your industry, position, or years of experience, you can play a fundamental role in affecting positive social impact.
