Central Georgia Coalition of Black Businesses


1 night, 1 table, 3 separate discussions. The Central Georgia Coalition of Black Businesses aims to facilitate the economic advancement of Black people in Central Georgia by focusing on these three pillars: Business, Community, & Government. During this session, participants will have the option to directly contribute to 1 of the 3 discussion topics (Business, Community, Government). After the sub-tables have concluded, we will come together as a whole group and discuss how all 3 topics are interrelated and what our next steps are as an organization.

What is On the Table

On the Table is a one of a kind opportunity to bring people of diverse backgrounds together to have meaningful conversations about topics that are important to the community. This community-wide initiative seeks to explore the ways in which we have the power to collaborate to make our community stronger, safer, and more dynamic.


Following On the Table, the Community Foundation of Central Georgia will survey participants to find out what issues matter most to them and what kinds of ideas for solutions emerged from the day’s conversations. We’ll also help to share some stories of participants to help inspire others to make a difference.

This initiative would not be possible without the generous funding of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
