Greenville will be the site of an economic empowerment workshop for minorities and women in business or those who are interested in starting a business.
The free event will be on Wednesday, March 21 from 8:30 a.m. to noon.
Bill Walker, Greenville economic development coordinator, said the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity is making an effort to move toward the Metro East. Greenville will be the first community in the Metro East to host the event. It is designed to introduce minority and women businesspeople to opportunities in the region and state they may not know about.
