On July 22, 2020, we hosted our first virtual event: How can we help small and minority-owned businesses recover from COVID-19.
We were truly grateful to have the insights and advice of the following outstanding panelists:
- Oscar Mejias, CEO - Rhode Island Hispanic Chamber of Commerce
- Lisa Ranglin, President - Rhode Island Black Business Association
- Matt Sheaff, Director of Stakeholder Engagement and Chief Marketing Officer - Rhode Island Commerce
The conversation focused on how small and minority-owned businesses in Rhode Island have been affected by COVID-19, how they've adapted to new public health regulations and requirements, and how Rhode Island leaders are responding to the unique needs of these businesses as we move to re-open our economy.
