Roundtable — episode 10

The racial wealth gap undermines the wellbeing and financial security of Black Americans, and it impedes U.S. economic growth. Four Black entrepreneurs and executives, leading lights in the indie beauty community, delve into how the beauty industry can ensure the current focus on Black-owned businesses isn’t a passing trend in a digital panel featuring guest moderator Kilee Hughes, founder of public relations firm Six One. They also address ways to change major roadblocks Black business owners face in later phases of entrepreneurship, including sustaining and scaling, a stage often requiring an influx of capital.
