Trying to advance your career as a women of color isn't always easy. According to a recent study from McKinsey and LeanIn.org, women of color represent only 4% of C-Level positions, despite representing about 18% of the U.S. population. So it shouldn't come as a surprise that according to Census data, minority women now control nearly half of all women-run businesses. But even with this entrepreneurial growth, much support is still needed for women of color to advance and thrive in the business world.
