Shades of Progress: A Business Alliance for People of Color Conference

May 22 @ 8:00 am - 2:00 pm

Visit Event Website

The Shades of Progress Conference is not just for BIPOC professionals; it’s an inclusive gathering welcoming leaders and organizations from all backgrounds. We believe in the power of collaboration, support, and empowerment to drive positive change in New Hampshire’s business landscape.

During the conference, you will have the opportunity to choose from a variety of workshops tailored to your interests and needs. These workshops are designed to facilitate learning, connection, and growth, fostering a sense of unity and celebrating diversity. You will also be connecting and networking during a full layout for breakfast and lunch, as well as our “Market Place” that will highlight BAPOC business members and their products.


Hear Business and Economic Affairs Commissioner, Taylor Caswell, speak to the importance of this developing economic ecosystem and the interconnections to the broader NH and regional economies. Hear Keynote Speaker, Anthony Poore, President and CEO of the New Hampshire for Justice and Equity, speak to the connection between the growth of BIPOC businesses and entrepreneurialism, the building of wealth, and the future health of our NH BIPOC and mainstream communities.


Breakout sessions include:

  • Tools for Success: Jumpstart a Small BIPOC Business
  • Tech Empowerment: Navigating Emerging Technologies for Small BIPOC Business
  • Business Growth Blueprint: Empowering Entrepreneurs
  • Shades of Progress: Financial Institutions Inclusion of Small BIPOC Businesses

Please select one workshop that aligns with your interests and expertise, and feel free to spread the word to your network. Together, let’s unite as a community to celebrate diversity and drive meaningful progress.

We look forward to welcoming you at Shades of Progress, where we will explore the many shades of progress together.
