SUSTAINING GREATNESS: This week we are occupying space on the Design Week platform to celebrate our recurring theme of “Sustaining Greatness”. Each highlight aligns with our dedication to amplifying Black and Indigenous People of Color and their voices. Everyone in this curation exudes excellence in their own way and we encourage you to take time to immerse yourself in appreciating their talents and entrepreneurship in addition to all the folx that exist within the Mercatus ecosystem.
