You are invited to join the Louisiana Asset Funders Network for an informal social where we will celebrate the founding of this new chapter, highlight our 2019 plans, encourage you to share your focus with your fellow funders, and engage with exciting guest speakers.
Small businesses play a large role in the American economy. Moreover, business ownership can serve as a wealth-building tool for women. Black women are the fastest growing group of small business owners in the nation. Join us as we explore this trend, systemic barriers to black women's economic mobility, and black women business owners' potential to impact local economies and support the economic health and vitality of both rural and urban communities.
We invite grant-makers, policy influencers, practitioners, and the business community to this conversation on how to intentionally support entrepreneurial women build wealth through business ownership. Participation in this event is free; however, registration is required by Thursday, March 7th, as space is limited.
Speakers will include regional and national experts, including keynote speakers Martine Aurelien, Duke University; Dell Gines, Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City; and Karama Neal, Southern Bancorp Community Partners.
