ROAD Session 1 - Still Open for Business: Working with Minority-Owned Rural Firms through the Pandemic
Racially and ethnically diverse populations comprise 21 percent of rural America—but produced 83 percent of its growth between 2000 and 2010, a trend that has continued since. Along with that, enterprising Latinx, Black and Indigenous entrepreneurs are launching businesses bringing new life to many rural communities – and creating better livelihoods for their owners and employees. But what has happened to these firms during the COVID-19 crisis? And how are rural development organizations adapting what they do to help these firms to get through the emergency and recover?

In this first Rural Opportunity and Development (ROAD) Session, rural minority business owners will detail their recent experiences, in partnered conversation with the regional intermediaries who have been helping them with technical assistance, funding and advocacy. Join us for the their exchange in the first hour – and stay with us, if you wish, for 30 minutes of small-group peer-sharing and advice.

Jul 22, 2020 02:30 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
