As Black History Month comes to a close, the Women’s Business Development Center (WBDC) reaffirms our unwavering commitment to advocacy and action for ending racism. The WBDC is proud to honor, year-round, Black history and experience, as well as the many contributions of Blacks to our country’s history.
2020 was notable not only for the pandemic and its unprecedented challenges, but also as a year during which there was a mass awakening to both longstanding police brutality against Blacks and the legacy of racism. The WBDC was inspired by the peaceful ways in which our communities came together to demand justice and the dismantling of the systems and norms that have perpetuated racial inequality and injustice for centuries.
In 2021, we must strive to do even more and continue to work together until our diverse country has become a true model for inclusiveness and equity, offering equality for all Americans.
