Partnership Spotlight: EVOLVE

Working Solutions staff at the Do You Retreat organized by EVOLVE

Working Solutions staff recently joined African-American business owners for a two-day ‘Do You Retreat’ organized by EVOLVE.

Inga Mork, Working Solutions COO, presented on behalf of our organization and our focus on supporting women and entrepreneurs of color. The collective heard from inspiring presenters and prior retreat attendees, did a great deal of networking, and discussed health and wellbeing—an integral part of the retreat offering. Participants were moved and inspired to transform their lives in a community of other healthy, focused women.

Working Solutions left the retreat with more leads than any other event in the history of the organization, and we were introduced to four new African-American community partners. As a direct result of this event, we have offered technical support to 43 entrepreneurs of color, have funded six new loans, and are fortunate to have two new legal advisors.

EVOLVE is founded by Tamara Steele, a Family Law attorney in Oakland. Thank you to Tamara and the EVOLVE team for this opportunity!
