|Women of Color As Entrepreneurs|
|Women of color are making their mark as entrepreneurs. The firms women of color own are growing at six times the rate of all companies in the U.S. Between 1997 and 2004, the data from all privately-held firms in the U.S. shows they grew by nine percent. Those owned by women of color grew by 54.6%. |

People who are different from you don't make you feel completely comfortable. You believe they have a right to be treated respectfully, but, if you had your choice, you would not have them as colleagues or clients.
