Amid the uncertainty around the pandemic, recent tragic events and the resulting uprising have brought attention to some uncomfortable truths: the long-standing racism and injustices faced by people of color on a daily basis.
Within the boutique fitness industry, we are directly seeing the lasting negative effects that this has had on black business owners.
Not only in today’s episode, but in the weeks and months to come, we want to use our voice to nurture this conversation as we find more ways to build opportunities for all within our industry.
Grab your headphones and find a cozy space all your own so we can jump right in.
