The MBDA Pandemic Recovery Center, a collaborative initiative operated by Houston Community College and funded by the U.S Department of Commerce through the Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA), is offering a six-part workshop series as part of its Men in Business Series in February. This no-cost initiative is designed to foster the growth, leadership, financial literacy, educational training, and business development of minority male entrepreneurs and business owners.
