Business Mentor NY – a program of Empire State Development
I'm white, so I can't answer that, but I'd like to connect you to a colleague of mine who is building a professional network in just this space-- BLOC, or Business Leaders of Colors is a community of minority-owned and women-owned businesses. (I like to colorfully describe it as the network built for the driven business owner who doesn't have their own natural network formed by great-grandpa's nepotism). I'm also in Ithaca so can do coffee if distant, but meeting virtually is easier to schedule. I don't get notifications that I've received a message here, so call or text me: 641.451.1023

Beth, Build intersectionality into your brand promise and philosphy, collaborations, culture, vision, mission and marketing materials. Sponsor causes that you believe in and select partnerships that demonstrate intersectionality. Let them share your sponsorship or silent auction donations. Attend trainings and participate in discussions by organizations like Human in Common, CoJourn, Fearless! Hudson Valley Inc., Tracking Wonder or United State of Women.
