COVID-19 revealed gross disparities in education, housing, access to technology, economic stabilization, healthcare and food insecurity in many urban cities.
Syracuse, NY is an urban city with amongst the highest concentrated Black and Latino poverty in the nation. More than 64% of the City's Black and brown children live in severe poverty.
Dismantling these age-old inequities requires public private partnerships and bold thinking with a commitment to building stronger, more economically sound communities; communities where women, families, and small business come first. Communities where families have access to quality affordable housing, safe neighborhoods, good schools, jobs, and pathways to greater community and generational wealth building.
We’re excited to expand our reach into New York and to launch The Institute in Syracuse this October. A 6,000sf incubator/accelerator space designed with women entrepreneurs, at-risk girls, and communities of color in mind, The Institute will offer programming, training, technical assistance, and much needed services/resources.
Let's all build back stronger from the Pandemic. Stronger community stakeholders, allies, and partners create greater pathways to business ownership, economically sound communities, and strategic youth development initiatives that empower and move women entrepreneurs, leaders, and youth toward greater outcomes.
The WEI will continue to advocate for Family Medical Leave, women’s equal pay, and minimum wage while providing technical support, training, and coaching for women leaders and entrepreneurs. We've also launched the CNY Black Entrepreneur's Roundtable and the CNY Black Women's Expo. To join the Roundtable drop us an email firstname.lastname@example.org. For more info on the 2022 CNY Black Women's Expo click the CNY tab at the top of the page.
The Entrepreneur's Roundtable will strengthen the pipeline of Black/women entrepreneurs and professionals throughout Central New York; foster stronger community development with Black allies/stakeholders; infuse much needed capital into Black enterprises and non-profits; build scalable sustainable business solutions; and establish a business incubator/accelerator.
The Roundtable also provides educational programs which increase financial preparedness, fiscal health, and access to credit for small businesses. Contact the WEI at 315-551-2500 to learn more about our BIPOC Women's Incubator and programs/resources for women-led enterprises.
