ARG'S Social Responsibility:
Giving back is important to Angela, ARG's founder. When you work with ARG Coaching & Consulting Group, you are also contributing to something far greater. A portion of the annual revenues will go to support three foundations: ARG Cultivators Community our 501(c)3 that fosters business development for emerging business owners, Women Enterprise Foundation (WEF), and the American Cancer Society.
To show up at our best, we have to have balance in our lives. A part of ARG Cultivators Community's mission is to be a conduit through change. As a community, we have to support each other in health and business in order to thrive. There continues to be a disparity gap for women business owners and an even larger one for minority women-owned businesses. The aforementioned foundations strengthen the well being of women in personal and professional ways, ensuring that women have the resources they need to manage what life throws their way.
Angela understands the impact that these organizations can make on the lives of people in the community. Being a women business owner (WBO), WEF supported her with scholarship and grant funds to assist with business development. As a cancer conquerer, she recognizes the importance of organizations like the American Cancer Society and gives back to support others through their cancer journey.
Procurement and Diverse Spending
At ARG, we ensure that we our resources are spent with diverse vendors. We try to procure. with minority businesses. About 90% of our spend is with small, local, women, and minority owned companies.
The We Are Project
We are creating parity for minority women-owned businesses. The We Are Project is creating awareness around the revenue and growth disparity for businesses owned by minority women.
A portion of the proceeds from the We Are Project Box will go to support minority women in business. Our goal is to sell 1,000 boxes this year supporting at least 50 women business owners with grant/scholarship awards.
The We Are Project is designed to eradicate the gaps that put WOC at a disadvantage, giving them an even playing field for business development.
