Economic Empowerment

You are here

One Hundred Black Men’s commitment to economic empowerment is driven by increasing access to investment capital and government contracts for minority businesses. Our support for M/WBE’s (Minority and Women Business Enterprises) includes championing the expansion of state and local contracts, as well as supporting the certification process. Our members also serve on task forces to monitor policy development and accountability metrics.

One Hundred Black Men hosts an annual Economic Empowerment Summit to increase MWBE utilization and participation. This event advises companies on doing business with government, public utilities, and the private sector. The next Summit will be held in April 2016.
