Memphis, TN (PRWEB) March 16, 2007
KC Management Group (KCMG), a management consultant firm specializing in Information Technology systems and business process operations, has announced its participation in a multi-year national ground-breaking research study to advance the growth of U.S. businesses owned by women of color.
The study, "Accelerating the Growth of Businesses Owned by Women of Color", is being conducted by the Center for Women's Business Research and Babson College Center for Women's Leadership. Sponsored by a number of leading US corporations, women business owner organizations and nonprofits, it will seek to uncover barriers and challenges faced by women of color who own businesses. Its recommendations for public and private sector policies will be presented at a conference in 2009.
KCMG founder and CEO Camelle Logan, who actively participated in the launch of this study on February 21 in Philadelphia, says:
"KCMG has joined this research project to help support women of color who are entrepreneurs. Many women of color who start businesses are not aware of the many obstacles they will meet, not only as entrepreneurs, but as women of color. Hopefully, this study will contribute to greater knowledge and understanding as well as to a national agenda and policies that will remove barriers to success so women of color can fulfill their potential to make a positive economic and social impact."
KCMG was established in 2002 and is headquartered in Memphis, Tennessee with offices in Chicago, Illinois and Baltimore, Maryland. KCMG clientele includes state and local government entities, nonprofits and commercial clients throughout the United States.
