Workshop: Expansion, Collaboration & Partnerships – Black Women Working Together

black women

Black Women are opening businesses at a rate of 6 times more than all women-owned businesses, but our revenues and the number of employees we have are lower than all others.

If you’re ready to get on a growth trajectory, or if you’re already growing and want to continue, join this discussion.

If your business has employees, multiple locations and/or is expanding rapidly and you want to connect with other women doing the same thing, this session is for you.

If you are considering hiring or expanding or just starting out and want to ensure you are built to grow, this session is for you.  

Connect with our panelists and other women who have dealt with some of the same challenges, have the same questions and can share strategies and resources for success.  

Plus, we will talk about how collaboration and partnerships can help you grow your business and begin to identify opportunities. 

Our panelists for the evening are Nichole Hatcher, Esq. founding member of Hatcher Legal, PLLC, Gloria Shealey, President and CEO of The Daniele Company and La-Tasha Best-Gaddy, Business Counselor with North Carolina’s Small Business and Technology Development Center (SBTDC). 

Hatcher Legal, PLLC has offices in North Carolina and Maryland.  The Daniele Company is a woman-owned commercial general contracting and construction management firm that’s been responsible for over $560 million in projects across a variety of industries. SBTDC provides support to entrepreneurs to help them start and grow their businesses. You can read more about our panelists below. 

This is your safe space to ask questions, share concerns, and get support. Plus, if you are interested in collaborating with another Black Woman business owner professionally, bring your ideas/requests and we’re going to talk about getting you connected!  RSVP now at
