Ida Byrd-Hill highlights Corporations Should INVEST in Black America – the 12th Largest Nation

July 03 15:07 2017

Black America earns and spends 1.3 trillion dollars annually, making it the 12th Largest Nation in the World. Its women, according to a 2016 report by the  National Center for Educational Statistics, are the most educated population in America.

Ida Byrd-Hill believes Companies should be rushing to locate, trade and invest in this SUPER POWER NATION – Black America.

Despite their economic power as a super power nation, Black America is invisible as employees in the digital revolution.

In her newest book, Invisible Talent Market, a Diversity & Inclusion guide, utilizing economic history of Blacks, Ida postulates that grooming Blacks with digital business skills is a viable strategy to reduce America’s talent shortage, without outsourcing and visas, as Blacks satisfied the talent shortages of the Agricultural and Industrial Revolutions.
