Entrepreneur Kimberly Lee Minor explains the origins of Women of Color in Retail
A note from Tony Farmer, host, Black Lives Matter Radio Show — It’s a pleasure to introduce you tonight to Kimberly Lee Minor, a corporate exec turned entrepreneur who has held positions such as brand president for London Fog, Rampage, Bongo, and Joe Boxer before launching her own firm, Bumbershoot. Today, she is leveraging her personal insights and hard-won expertise to help women and people of color accelerate their careers by providing them inclusive communities where they can obtain exposure, support, and empowerment from accomplished experts. Our producer, Hope Katz Gibbs, featured Kim in the July 2020 issue of Inkandescent Women magazine: https://inkandescentwomen.com/issues/july-2020/ The two have known each other since they were 12 and students in Lafayette Hill, PA. When the Black Lives Matter marches began in the spring of 2020, Hope reached out to Kim to get her perspective, wisdom, and insights into what we can do together to make the world a better place. Tonight, we sit down with Kim to take a deeper dive into the discussion. Be sure to listen to our conversation!
