On February 9, Stay, Work, Play New Hampshire is offering the opportunity to hear from three young New Hampshire entrepreneurs about their experiences as people of color starting businesses in the Granite State.
The event is part of Stay, Work Play’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion series, which offers events year-round that foster conversation, encourage learning and push for change.
The next event, NH Professionals of Color, will be held on Tuesday, February 9 at 1 p.m.
New Hampshire is well known for its business friendly atmosphere, but what’s it like to start a business here as a young person of color?
In this virtual story telling event, hear from three New Hampshire-based entrepreneurs of color who will share their personal and business experiences — including both their challenges and their successes – here in the Granite State.
Speakers for the event are Gail Somers, or Yahso Jamaican Grille in Keene, Geno Miller of Shtudy in Manchester and Jose Diaz of Spyglass Eyewear in Laconia.
The event is free, but registration is required. Please register here.
When Stay, Work, Play New Hampshire surveyed residents between 20 and 40 years old, they cited “lack of diversity” as a potential reason for leaving the state.
The Charitable Foundation is a proud sponsor of Stay, Work Play’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion series.
