Cooperative Advantage: Lessons from African-American Management History

Open to current USASBE members & friends
Webinar link provided upon registration
The thought leadership and practices of successful Black entrepreneurs, managers, and social innovators have been absent from Entrepreneurship and Management textbooks, not because they did not contribute, but because they and their contributions have been ignored or overlooked. As part one of our our four-part "Black Lives Matter: Affirmation & Action" series presented by USASBE's Minority & Women's Entrepreneurship Special Interest Group (SIG), this webinar explores African-American Management History by presenting a few of the many “forgotten” Black business pioneers of the early twentieth century, how they gained a cooperative advantage, and lessons we can learn from them today.
