Corporate Counsel Women of Color® (CCWC), a leader in the movement for diversity and inclusion in the legal profession, is pleased to announce a new initiative for minority women entrepreneurs.  The program aims to help minority women entrepreneurs maximize their full potential by pairing them with minority women lawyer-mentors.
