CULTIVATING COMMUNITY AND CHANGING THE INDUSTRY
"BPBN is committed to pushing past the conversations of diversity, equity and inclusion. Our commitment is to finding doors and opening them to the next generation of leaders in the pet industry."
Black Pet Business Network
BPBN is a community based, non-profit organization with a mission to support the growth and development of black-owned businesses and leaders in the pet and animal industry. With less than 5% of the industry's demographic being represented by people of color; we are committed to promoting inclusion in various areas of entrepreneurship, corporate leadership and animal welfare.
Since 2021 BPBN has advocated and cultivated a thriving community of participants and supporters nation-wide. We envision a future where black pet professionals are fully represented, valued and thriving.
