Jan. 22, 2007 -- The first of four national research forums on businesses owned by women of color begins on Feb. 21 at the Courtyard Marriott in Philadelphia, organizers said.

The forum, Accelerating the Growth and Success of Businesses Owned by Women of Color, a joint effort by the Center for Women's Business Research and Babson College, aims to identify barriers to business growth faced by women of color.

The event will also be held in Atlanta, San Francisco, and Dallas later this year.
