Last Tuesday, April 14, the Lawyers’ Committee’s Economic Justice Project finished the 5th season of the Create Your Own Job Seminar. This semester we partnered with Roxbury Community College for the first time, as well as our longtime partner, Latham & Watkins. This 7-week Seminar is targeted to entrepreneurs who are looking to create their own business and need assistance and education about the building blocks of small business development. The participants learned about personal finance, business planning, marketing, social media, and business legal basics.
The entrepreneurs in this class of the Seminar include an online fashion magazine, a life coach, an event planner, a family peanut business, among other creative individuals. This Seminar we had one our largest classes, with 16 individuals participating.
We look forward to continuing to assist these awesome entrepreneurs as they continue to be successful!
