The “Great Resignation” of the COVID pandemic has led to more entrepreneurs than ever; it has also increased mental health awareness and self care focus. Introducing the concept of mental health and how it aligns with your success has led us to hosting our second Black History event; ROOTs: Realizing Our Opportunities Together a Black Excellence Exhibition. During Black History month we will celebrate Black Creatives in the RDU. We will host this networking event at one of the newest Durham co-working spaces, Durham Bottling Co. Where we’ll introduce the public to Black Businesses and talent from right here in our local community while providing an educational panel focusing on the entrepreneur and mental health. Our mission for this event is to provide a platform for creatives to showcase their products or services, provide an education panel, and vendor opportunities to bring us together. This is a dress to impress occasion.
