We are in the 21st century and many things have witnessed developments and technologies have vastly advanced. Yet the issues and challenges faced by black women in the United States of America are still more complex. Although the black women owned business has increased by 164% from 2007 to 2017, yet the problems and encounters faced by these people are humongous. It is sad, that color is the major problem behind these challenges.
The burdens of poverty and racism turn into negative forces and remain as the inhibiting factor in making accomplishments. Despite these challenges, yet many blacks excels in education and training and reach on par with the white females in many industries such as communication, education, financial services and many more. In order to identify their achievements and accomplishments, many events based platforms like Frocentric conducts Frocentric events.
Frocentric events majorly aim to make the world more aware about the black culture and portray the hardships they face in the society. Many of their events geared towards promoting black reawakening through activism.
Some of the major challenges faced by black women are as follows
- Black Females are lone breeders in business meetings – Although female owned businesses are increasing considerably yet they need to prove their qualification, potential, and ambition with the other colleagues to be a part of the organization. Yet, due to discrimination, they are not offered better roles, unlike white females.
- Difficulties in getting a mentor– Mentorship plays a vital role in the success of an early entrepreneur. However, this is not an easily attainable task for black females. In order to achieve they need to participate in a various voluntary role and create a network.
Apparently, in many of the Frocentric events, their challenges are clearly explained.
