Entrepreneurship and Inclusion in the Creative Economy

November 15 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Entrepreneurship is a way that many young People of Color are circumventing the gatekeepers and barriers-to-entry that exist within traditional companies — no more HR departments, resumes, and college degrees are needed in order to enter a field.
Instead, entrepreneurs need smarts, training, hustle, dedication, stamina, networks and grit — things that are available to a wider range of people from a wider range of backgrounds. In this discussion, entrepreneur Jamel Mosely of Collectiveffort and Mel eMedia will interview Patrick Harris Jr., President of Collectiveffort, Rachelle Pean, LCSW, Founder of Chelle Marie Wellness LLC, and Jinah Kim, Owner of Sunhee’s Farm and Kitchen —three Creative Economy entrepreneurs who are creating their own career tracks, without big companies or gatekeepers getting in the way.

Thanks to our sponsors Community Loan Fund,  Workforce Development Institute, and Capital Region Center For Economic Growth and promotional partners Mission Accomplished Transition Services, Collectiveffort and Youth FX.
