WOMEN & MONEY: Yes, we really have to keep talking about this

Woman entrepreneurs fight Covid slump with new business ideas

Businesses owned by Native women have been growing faster than average over the last five years, but their businesses generate less revenue due to systemic racism and sexism. It’s estimated that if businesses run by Native women were equal to those run by white women, they’d add an additional $27,102,284 to the economy. CLICK FOR MORE
