Black-Owned Service Providers for Events
Supporting Black-Owned Businesses as an Event Planner
As an event planner, supporting Black-owned service providers is not only a socially responsible action, but it also brings several benefits to your event and your business. Supporting Black-owned businesses is an essential step towards promoting diversity and inclusion. By intentionally seeking out and selecting Black-owned service providers, you're creating a more inclusive and diverse event. In turn, this helps to foster a more welcoming and accepting environment for all attendees.
It's a small action that can contribute to a larger movement towards social justice and equality. By using your platform to support Black-owned businesses, you're contributing to a more just and equitable society. As an event planner, you have the power to make a difference in your community and your industry by intentionally seeking out and working with black-owned businesses.
We aim to make this list as comprehensive as possible for businesses that provide support to events and event planners. If you are a Black business owner and would like to be included on this list, please get in touch with us!
