The College of Business at The University of Southern Mississippi and the Magnolia Business Alliance teamed up to provide an opportunity for budding businesswomen to learn more about how to grow their unique enterprises during a special forum held Dec. 2 on the Hattiesburg campus.

The “Empowering Women: Minority Women Entrepreneurs Forum” – offered everything from social media strategies to small business resources. The forum also featured networking opportunities and allowed time for attendees to speak one-on-one with various small business service providers.

“This event allows these women entrepreneurs to step away from their everyday routine and take time to focus on the big picture of their business,” said Dr. Jennifer Sequeira, associate professor of management at Southern Miss.

Southern Miss alumna Dr. Beverly Dale, who forged a successful career in the health sciences industry, served as the forum’s keynote speaker.
