Creative Women Legal Workshop

Creative Women Build invites you to network and build with us! We're excited to launch Creative Women Elevate, a 3-part workshop series. The first workshop, “Developing a Solid Legal Foundation,” will cover how to establish the legal basics for your business.

This workshop is for you if you’re thinking about starting your business or if you are in the early stages! Our mission is to provide black women business owners with the tools and resources they need to launch and grow their businesses.

Our guest speaker for the workshop will be Desireé L. Talley Esq. Desireé is an attorney based in New York City. She provides legal services to music, film, and creative agencies, and entertainment-based individuals and businesses.

Desireé will cover the following topics:

  • Overview of business structures

  • Business entity selection

  • Business formation

Join us for the workshop followed by a Werk Session to apply what you learned from our guest speaker. You will receive a workbook and leave the workshop with the information and resources you need to determine the best legal structure for your business and the steps you will take to become a legal entity. Bring your laptop, tell a friend and come ready to learn!

Light refreshments and snacks will be provided by black women-owned businesses we love!
