The Governor announced that, starting today, individuals aged 65 and older, certain workers, and people with certain underlying conditions are eligible to get the vaccine. Please continue to check the State’s website for the full list of eligible groups. Eligible New Yorkers can find locations near them and make appointments online at vaccinefinder.nyc.gov or by calling 877-VAX4NYC for assistance in multiple languages. Because the supply of vaccine is very limited and will fluctuate daily, appointments will be given based on availability. Additional sites are coming online every day, and we encourage all to check the website regularly or call the City’s hotline.
Remember, with rising cases and hospitalizations, we must also remain vigilant and continue practicing the strategies we know work to stop the spread of COVID-19.
NFBPWC-NYC proudly hosted Jackie Adams and Bonita Stewart, authors of this seminal work on December 8, 2020. The conversation presented findings from their proprietary research in a conversation that is both important and very timely. Hear from Bonita Stewart on the impact women of color. Keep an eye out for the new survey results this spring.
More about Blessing…
A Blessing offers a playbook to help Black “unicorns,” successful business women like themselves, team up and find innovative ways to support one another as they climb the lonely, stressful, jagged, yet ultimately rewarding ladders of opportunity. It is filled with personal anecdotes and reflective experiences from the authors and accomplished women business leaders across industries based on their respective careers in the technology, brand marketing, and national media sectors and serves as a framework for women of color to work together, team up and shed the cloak of invisibility and aloneness. At the close of each chapter, readers will have an opportunity to create their own personal journals of reflections in what the authors call the “Living Log” as readers answer critical, insightful questions that help them see themselves – their hopes, ambitions and desires – much more clearly and defined.
We encourage you to attend the event and read the book, and to invite others to do as well, because not only will this make the perfect holiday gift, but we also seek to support local businesses and business women.
To purchase the book, kindly visit the below links to local indie bookstores:

On Thursday, April 21, 2016 Bill 704A was signed into law. It requires the N.Y.C. Department of Small Business Services to conduct a voluntary survey of companies that do business with the City to collect data on the gender, racial, and ethnic diversity among the directors, officers, and executive-level staff members of such companies. The survey will additionally request information on companies’ plans to improve diversity in such positions and efforts taken to achieve those plans.
This is the beginning of answering the need for transparency of equality, diversity and plans to improve diversity in the C Suite and on boards.
There is of course, more work to be done, but let’s Celebrate this Major Step Forward.
