Sobey strengthens their partnership with the Black Business Community

Date Published: April 13, 2021

The Sobey School of Business is launching a series of conversations with the Black Business Community. 

The first in this series is a conversation joined by Dr. Rustum Southwell DCL’18, CEO of the Black Business Initiative (BBI), the premier business development organization supporting Black businesses in Nova Scotia, and Ms. Cynthia Dorrington, the President of Vale & Associates Human Resource Management and Consulting Inc.

The conversation will focus on lessons learned from 25 years of Black Business advocacy, including many challenges inherent to Black Canadians that constitute an impediment to business startups and continued growth and scaling. Furthermore, the conversation will touch on how we can mobilize support programs and initiatives for Black Businesses so that the community can emerge stronger and more prosperous in the post-COVID environment.
