Watch: Strategies for Standing Out As a Black Woman In Business Only 1% of C-suite leaders are Black women. How do we change that?

By Entrepreneur Staff

Data shows that Black women are promoted more slowly than other groups of employees and are significantly underrepresented in senior leadership. Only 1% of C-suite leaders are Black women, and Black women business owners typically receive lower levels of funding. At Yelp's first-ever Black in Business Summit in August, which was sponsored in part by Entrepreneur, panelists discussed standing out as a Black woman in business.

In the video above, you'll hear from these Black business builders on their experiences, challenges and how they've created a seat at the table. You'll also learn:

  • How the panelists have developed and expressed themselves as Black women in business

  • How to bring a product to market and tell a brand story that resonates with customers of different backgrounds and cultures

  • How to leverage digital platforms to connect with like-minded business owners

This conversation was moderated by Cate Luzio, founder and CEO of Luminary. In a separate session, Luzio also broke down the top three essentials when crafting a powerful business plan in order to achieve short and long-term goals, reduce risk and build a path to success for your business. You can watch that video here, where you'll learn:

  • How a business plan will help you make tough decisions, better and faster

  • How to lay out new revenue streams, generate new ideas and determine what's working and what's not

  • What resources are available to help you start writing your business plan today
