Diversity in Business Ownership
On The Point, we discuss the status of businesses owned by people of color locally, and across Massachusetts. What are the issues they face, and how can policy makers and the community support these businesses now, and pave the way for more to prosper in the future? Owning a business can lead to economic stability and prosperity, but people of color have faced historical discrimination and racism when trying to start and sustain businesses.
