  1. Amazing, AMAZING! This is what we should be researching and connecting ourselves with these companies, to gain employment or see how our businesses can work in line with each other.

    Good information! However, I'd like to know what these companies are doing regarding hiring & professionally developing black/african-american people. In other words, what is their commitment to growing our communities ecomomically? Do they donate/contribute to organization to help accomplish this goal? Do they have blacks in key decision-making positions? What is the racial makeup of their boards of directors. What is the ethnic & gender makeup of the top earners in their companies. Are these companies just made up of blacks at the top who make no real effort to improve our communities but for PR purposes. Now, that's something I'd like to see your organization investigate & report on. Let me know if you decide to pursue something like this; [email protected].
