Overview: Racial disparities impacting Black wealth have been an issue for decades. Research shows that Blacks have a drastically more difficult time investing in, managing, and multiplying assets because they frequently lack the knowledge to achieve true financial freedom. While some public and private programs are designed to increase access and address systemic disparities, our nation has yet to reach a place where it ensures equity for all races and genders. Because of this reality, it has become imperative for the Black community to look at wealth building as a “Team Sport” rather than an individual game. In this workshop, we will explore ways to intentionally and proactively use mentorship to help grow prosperity and build a lineage of new Black Millionaires.
