The State of Black, Women-owned Businesses in Oklahoma

November 2 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

You are invited to this event presented by the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City and the Oklahoma City Black Chamber of Commerce.

Women-owned businesses are important drivers of local economic growth and quality of life in our Oklahoma communities. Understanding and ensuring their growth and success is critical to maintaining a strong Oklahoma economy and producing jobs. Since the recession, women-owned
businesses started at a much faster rate than men-owned businesses.

During this same period, Black, women-owned businesses grew faster than any other group of new business owners.

Come and learn more about the impact and trends in women-owned businesses in general, and Black, women-owned businesses specifically in Oklahoma.

The session will cover the following:
* Women-owned business trends in Oklahoma including growth rates, size and economic impact.
* Black, women-owned business trends in the state, including race and gender comparisons, growth rates, and industry clusters.
* Future research by the Federal Reserve Bank on Black, women-owned businesses being prepared in 2017 and released in 2018.

No cost to attend. Registration is required.
