Natalie Cofield of the Small Business Administration

Natalie Cofield is the Assistant Administrator for the Small Business Administration (SBA) Office of Women’s Business Ownership, and she joins the show with exciting news to share: a new Women’s Business Center has opened in Tulsa, OK, making it the 139th center across the country. These centers seek to provide resources to help women entrepreneurs start and grow their businesses. And beyond what it will provide for the community, it’s also a historic beginning, 100 years after the Black community in Tulsa’s Greenwood district, known as “Black Wall Street,” was destroyed in a racist attack that took the lives of approximately 300 Black Americans, and countless homes and businesses were destroyed.
