Black History Month Is To Be Celebrated by All: Shawna Collier Discusses the Power of Partnerships
This is the first installment in a four-part series that will run each Friday in The JP UP date during the month of February.
As a Black female practitioner who interfaces daily with the challenges faced by Black small business owners, I know first-hand how context can change everything. And how do I define context? People is the short answer. People can positively change the context. People can assert what is right. And people can provide support.
I am the first Black member of the Senior Staff Team at Justine PETERSEN. As Chief Partnership Officer I witness and harness the power of partnerships. Partnerships are essentially people.
Every week during Black History Month, I will provide an installment on the power of partnerships, the power of people.
Black History Month is a celebration of people.
