Joy McCloud, Committee Chair for the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Economic Development Committee for this event, joins us to share.
When asked why economic development was essential to their sorority, McCloud shared that one of the pillars of the organization is to support and develop financial fitness and fortitude.
Black women comprise the most significant demographic starting businesses, and I asked McCloud what new business owners can expect from this event. She shares that the course will include education, mentorship, and coaching in their experience.
For more established business owners with three years under their belts, McCloud shares that they will be in the room with financial lenders. These business owners are encouraged to bring the financial statements for more intimate conversations supporting their business growth.
McCloud shares that there will be continuous classes and opportunities for women business owners. Their website, asacdst.org, lists various events, including courses on financial literacy and obtaining government contracts.
I asked McCloud how she came to be involved in economic development, and she spoke about her career in finance and her passion for educating our community.
