Women’s History Month is a Time to Sing the Praises of Enterprising Women of Color


The following is a cross-post from the Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA)

Since 1987, March has been the time for our nation to pause to reflect on the amazing contributions of women who have set the stage, raised the bar, and made their distinctive mark on the advancement of minority business enterprises. Women’s History Month is a time to sing the praises of Enterprising Women of Color who have blazed new trails and broken barriers to become the largest and most economically significant component on the American entrepreneurial stage.

The Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA) developed Enterprising Women of Color (EWOC) to focus on the fast-expanding minority women entrepreneur population as a revenue generators for families, communities, and the Nation. The vision of EWOC is to ensure women worldwide to reach their economic potential.

Minority women are the fastest growing population of entrepreneurs. While many women are making tremendous strides in the business world, they still face obstacles as entrepreneurs. MBDA serves as an advocate for women’s economic empowerment by supporting efforts to advance women’s equality and promote women economic advancement programming.
