Since 1865, systemic barriers have been put in place to oppress people of color in America. The Shine Hard Family is here to change that reality for the next generation.
Our mission is to close the racial wealth gap in America. We do this by providing role model visibility for every vertical, transferring knowledge to create a blueprint for success, and intentionally connecting minority leaders to foster economic empowerment.
By recognizing phenomenal people of color in every industry, we make each profession more visible and realistic for the next generation of young black leaders.
By connecting black millennial leaders more intentionally,
we are a linchpin for collaboration and economic empowerment within the influencer community.
By bringing black millennial leaders directly to the community, we provide role models and blueprints that accelerate the success of the next generation.
