For this month's E-MERGE event, I will be introducing the creative community to Patsy T. Mink Center for Business & Leadership (MCBL).The Patsy T. Mink Center for Business & Leadership (MCBL) was established by YWCA O‘ahu, the U.S. Small Business Administration and a community of partners to become the only Women’s Business Center (WBC) in Hawai‘i. WBCs are designed to assist women in starting and growing small businesses, and seek to “level the playing field” for women entrepreneurs who still **** unique obstacles in the business world. MCBL is named in honor of Patsy T. Mink for her dedication to helping women through legislative reforms. She was a transformative leader and a national voice for gender equality, education, peace, and so much personally taken MCBL's workshops and consulted with them, I believe they are a valuable resource for anyone looking to establish or further their art career. Some of MCBL's services include education in finance, certification, copywriting, legal advice, pitching your art, consultation and more.
