Community Conversations: Building Back Better BIPOC Small Businesses

The Downtown Surrey Business Improvement Association’s fourth and final spring Community Conversation. We will be focusing on BIPOC small businesses . This is a continuation of a series that started last year. We have had prior conversations around education, environmentalism, and houselessness.

We will be discussing BIPOC small businesses and the difficulties they may face within our communities. We’ll dive deeper into the barriers that these business owners face from all aspects and how we as individuals can become more educated and support them. We hope that everyone tonight will be able to listen and learn valuable knowledge that can help ensure the BIPOC community is supported.

Our guest speaker Nerissa Allen, is the founder and president of the Black Business Association of BC, a non-profit organization supporting black businesses and entrepreneurs through a variety of resources

As the director of Chattel House Health and Beauty here in Surrey, she has spent the majority of her career in leadership roles, redefining how women of colour are perceived in the workplace. Nerissa has garnered valuable experience from all business levels and is excited to share this wealth of knowledge gained to support other entrepreneurs.

This evening will educate us on how each one of us can impact small BIPOC owned businesses within our communities.
