James Whitner‘s The Whitaker Group — the retail conglomerate that includes A Ma Maniére, Social Status and APB — has partnered with the Black Community Business Advisory (or BCBA) for a special six-part addition to its educational “Free Game” series. Past installments of “Free Game” have taught everything from business smarts to financial literacy, and the six BCBA courses will feature Black executives from companies like Nike and Bank of America sharing their business and life expertise, philosophies and more.
“Obtaining & Managing Credit For Personal & Business Finance,” the first of the six sessions, will occur over Zoom at 7 PM EST on June 24. Its panel will be hosted by Whitner himself, and consist of tenured Black executives who are key members of the BCBA. Over the course of the session, the panelists will share advice on how to secure financing and how policy, practice and terms can be shaped around both personal and business financing. There’s an interactive element too: interested parties can submit questions for the panel via The Whitaker Group’s designated intake form.
If you’re interested in registering for the panel, you can do so via the A Ma Maniére website. There’s no cost to attend, and further installments in the series will be announced soon.
