Walker's Legacy, a professional collective for multicultural women in business and entrepreneurship, and GLOSSRAGS, the brand behind the And Counting Collection and other wearable activism designs, have co-designed a historical tee highlighting women of color entrepreneurs. The #BEENBOSS Tee includes multicultural enterprising women from the past and present day.
The #BEENBOSS t-shirt is available in the Walker's Legacy online shop and features Madam C.J. Walker, Nely Galán, Tyra Banks, Mary Ellen Pleasant, Maggie Walker, Oprah Winfrey, Janice Bryant Howroyd, Cathy Hughes, Maria Contreras-Sweet, Sheila Johnson, and Nina Vaca.
With the #BEENBOSS tee, Walker's Legacy honors these pioneers in entrepreneurship who have contributed greatly to what is now the fastest growing segment of business owners - women of color. The #BEENBOSS Women Behind the Design Toolkit is available for download to help conduct important dialogue about women of color in business and entrepreneurship.
"GLOSSRAGS undoubtedly exists because of the sacrifices, diligence, and innovation of women of color who've come before me. Their struggles and successes have opened doors for me to thrive as an entrepreneur," said Randi Gloss, Founder of GLOSSRAGS. "It's exciting to work with Walker's Legacy to pay homage to such a dynamic group of women and what continues to be a growing legacy of women in business."
"We're excited to be working with Randi and her inspirational clothing line to further our mission of engaging women of color in business and entrepreneurship," said Natalie M. Cofield, Founder, and CEO of Walker's Legacy. "The #BEENBOSS design commemorates the achievements of women of color and supports the entrepreneurial spirit that drives both Walker's Legacy and GLOSSRAGS."
To further celebrate the fastest growing segment of entrepreneurs, Walker's Legacy inspires and equips women of color with their signature programs, educational content, and engaging initiatives. Find the full list of women highlighted and learn more about the #BEENBOSS Tee at www.walkerslegacy.com/
