About BIPOC At Work

Mary Young 1.jpeg

BIPOC at Work was founded by Mary Tillman-Young (she/her) of MTY Consulting. When founding MTY Consulting Mary quickly realized that as a Black woman, there were disproportionate barriers in place to starting a business. There was also a lack of representation, and so many untaught "practices" for which she didn't have access to.  Mary learned so much of what she knows from her brother Luke Tillman-Young, who is also an entrepreneur, and pieced together industry specifics from colleagues, peers and mentors. As many of Mary's peers also sought to create businesses, It quickly became evident that all of these best practices and strategies needed to be in one place. Thus, the birth of BIPOC at Work.

 

BIPOC at Work is an entrepreneur program that aims to provide BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) entrepreneurs with the tools and resources they need to succeed in their businesses. The program is designed to address the systemic barriers that BIPOC entrepreneurs face, such as lack of access to capital, business education, and mentorship opportunities.

The program offers a range of services, including mentorship, networking events, workshops, business coaching, and access to funding opportunities. These resources are tailored to the unique needs and challenges of BIPOC entrepreneurs, with a particular focus on empowering Black women entrepreneurs.

The program is led by a team of experienced professionals with a deep understanding of the challenges faced by BIPOC entrepreneurs. The team includes successful entrepreneurs, industry experts, and community leaders who are committed to promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion in the entrepreneurial landscape.

 

Through the program, BIPOC entrepreneurs have the opportunity to connect with a supportive community of like-minded individuals who share their experiences and can provide guidance and support. The program also provides access to funding opportunities, which are essential for BIPOC entrepreneurs who often struggle to access traditional funding sources.

Overall, the BIPOC entrepreneur program is a critical initiative that is helping to create a more inclusive and equitable entrepreneurial ecosystem. It is empowering BIPOC entrepreneurs to build successful businesses, create positive change in their communities, and contribute to the economic growth and prosperity of society as a whole.

We believe all people  should have the opportunity to embrace who they are, define their future, and change the world.
