New website launched to support BIPOC professionals

BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) – The Vermont Professionals of Color Network is hoping to eliminate the economic and professional gap between white and BIPOC entrepreneurs, and increase visibility of BIPOC-owned businesses, with the launch of a new website.

The website features a directory of 300 businesses across the state that are owned by Vermonters of color. It also has a jobs board that includes a range of positions, from internships to senior management roles.

Tino Rutanhira and Wei Wei Wang, [two of] the co-founders of the Vermont Professionals of Color Network, say the goals of the new website are to drive a new era of professional mobility, promote BIPOC entrepreneurial ventures, and nurture a powerful professional network.
