Below you will find the different services, products offered, or categories of female or minority owned businesses. Selecting the type of business will bring you to a listing of the companies where you can find their specific services, address, contact information, website address, and other details on the company. As noted, everything on womenandminoritybusiness.org is free to both users as well as business owners.
The free business directory (which can list Black, Latino, Veteran, women, disabled, etc.) lists all types of “disadvantaged” companies. They are called disadvantaged as the owners lack access to capital to fund their businesses as well as other barriers. Most of the business owners also face sexism, racism, and/or unconscious or conscious bias.
Find why it is great to shop at minority or female owned companies. “Vote for equality” by where you spend your money. Shop in person or use their websites to order products or services. Where and how you spend your money will make a difference in society and help address inequality, generational wealth, and many other challenges that are faced by the Black community, Latinos, LGBTQ, females, and the disabled among others. Or add your own business for free.
Businesses by gender, ethnicity, or veteran
If you are looking to find a company based on ownership, use the list immediately below. It will help you locate and filter down to businesses that are Latino or Black owned or that maybe are owned by a woman, veteran, or gay/lesbian or someone who identifies as LGBTQ. Of course the businesses may fall into multiple categories too, such as a Black Veteran or Female Latino.
In addition to the directory list immediately below, you can also find a business by category further down the page. Or of course there is the search bar on the home page and a search box on the bottom of this page.
