Supporting BIPOC Communities Requires Investing in BIPOC Leaders
The leaders that are not white, do not come from well-resourced communities, and do not have intergenerational wealth. The barriers they face are rooted in racism that cuts across all systems and sectors, from financial to philanthropy. Without access to financial and nonfinancial resources, Black and Brown movement leaders and social entrepreneurs face substantial roadblocks that prevent them from accomplishing their vision and expanding their work.
#Implicitbias and unfounded narratives surrounding communities of color plague the predominantly white financial institutions that unfairly deem Black and Brown organizations as “too risky” for investment. Versity Partners bridges the #racialwealthgap by providing capital, expertise, and network to #bipoc & #womenentrepreneurs.
