Wake-Up Women in Business, Women of Color Roundtable: Atlanta
In the recently released Report, WAKE-UP CALL, the U.S. Women’s Chamber of Commerce analysis of the 2012 U.S. Census report found women-owned business revenues lagging and for Women of Color, the statistics are even more disparate. You can read our press release about this event here.
