Walker’s Legacy, a professional collective for multicultural women in business and entrepreneurship, and General Assembly, an organization that offers career education and training, will host programs to explore the achievements of African-American women in entrepreneurship entitled A Conversation with Black Women Entrepreneurs.

The programs will take place in Washington, DC; Atlanta, GA; Los Angeles, CA and Chicago, IL on February 28 from 12:00PM to 1:30PM. The events will feature expert-led panel discussions and highlight the professional journeys panelists, tactics for success, and strategies for business growth.

“Our program encompasses the energy and pride that exist in both Black History Month and Women’s History Month,” said Natalie M. Cofield, Founder/CEO of Walker’s Legacy.

“We’re excited to work with General Assembly, a partnering organization that, too, recognizes the importance of empowering underrepresented professional communities by raising such an important conversation”

To further celebrate the fastest growing segment of entrepreneurs, the programming series will also examine original research conducted by Walker’s Legacy entitled “Black Women Entrepreneurs: Exploring Past and Present Conditions of Black Women’s Business Ownership.” The report, commissioned by the National Women’s Business Council (NWBC) and the Small Business Administration (SBA) Office of Advocacy, assesses the unique challenges and opportunities for this segment of business owners.
