NEW YORK, Dec. 6, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — BLACK ENTERPRISE—the No. 1 Black digital media brand, with more than 8 million monthly unique visitors—will present its inaugural Sisters Inc. Summit, as a groundbreaking virtual event on December 7. SistersInc. is 100% dedicated to Black women entrepreneurs, the fastest growing group of entrepreneurs in America. The event will feature some of the most powerful and dynamic business owners in the country, in candid conversation with each other—and the corporations and investors who support them.
“For years, SistersInc. has existed as standing-room-only sessions at our annual Entrepreneurs and Women of Power Summits, and more recently, under the banner of our award-winning podcast for and about women entrepreneurs,” says Black Enterprise Executive Managing Editor Alisa Gumbs. “To say that the SistersInc. Summit is happening by popular demand is an understatement—we’re finally giving the ladies what they’ve consistently shown they value and want.”
“Supporting the SistersInc. Summit, and investing in the success of Black women entrepreneurs in general, is yet another valuable opportunity for corporate America to back up pledges made over the past year to make tangible efforts to eliminate systemic racism and economic inequity,” says Black Enterprise CEO Earl “Butch” Graves Jr. “The Black women entrepreneurs and founders of SistersInc. represent a cadre of accomplished leaders committed to business ownership as a means of closing America’s racial wealth gap.”
Whether you consider yourself a founder, a CEO, a boss, or a side-hustler, SistersInc. represents a unique and valuable opportunity to connect to a powerful sisterhood of success to share resources, tackle common challenges, learn from each other, and grow together.
