The National Coalition of 100 Black Women Inc., Oakland Bay Area Chapter (NCBW-OBAC) held their 21st annual Madam C.J. Walker Luncheon and Empowerment Forum at the San Francisco Marriott Marquis on April 19.

Themed “Cultivating Our Legacy: Intentionally Building Our Future,” the event featured keynote speaker White House Correspondent April Ryan.

Ryan acknowledged the many influences that shaped her. From the legacies of Madam C.J. Walker, the first female self-made millionaire, and Shirley Chisholm, the first woman to run for president, to Huey Newton of the Black Panthers, Malcolm X and Marcus Garvey.

“Madam C.J. Walker was a pillar of strength for all of us,” she said.

Ryan, who has covered the White House for  more than two decades, garnered much attention when Pres. Donald Trump refused to allow her to ask a question about voter suppression and told her to sit down during a White House press conference.

His blatant disrespect of the seasoned journalist caused a media storm because the issue of voter suppression was fully relevant.

No surprise, women entrepreneurs have a harder time raising capital than their male counterparts. However, it is scaling companies — the 1% of companies raising venture capital to grow to be billion-dollar companies — that get all of the media attention. Far more entrepreneurs have more modest growth goals. These companies are more likely to seek loans.

Whether debt or equity, women-owned businesses use fewer types of financing options than their male counterparts, according to the 2016 Small Business Credit Survey: Report on Women-Owned Firms. Even when they are a low credit risk, they are less likely to get approved for a loan: 68% compared to 78% for their male counterparts.
