TO CHANGE THE CULTURE BY CAUSING “GOOD TROUBLE” THROUGH INCORPORATING TECHNOLOGY, HARD-WORK AND KINDNESS TO BE DISRUPTIVE!
With an ever changing business landscape, it is critically important to make sure all businesses have the same access to opportunities, and that racial equity and diversity initiatives are primary and crucial objectives to be achieved.
There must be intentional efforts and sincere commitment in order to meet racial, social and economic equity goals across the spectrum of business opportunities. There also must be transparency in how equity is pursued, managed and publicly communicated to prove an evolution in business practices.
Success in this arena requires a change agent. 7PM Group is that change agent.
THE FOUR KEY
7PM Group provides accountability to make sure the right people are at the right table for the fair assignment of contracts and projects with an eye on ensuring participation by minority- and women-owned businesses that are ready and able to execute the work at hand.
Many minority business owners do not have relationships that get them to the table. They often don’t have more because they don’t know more — whether that’s not being aware of the right players, the rooms to be in, or even the deals that are happening around them. 7PM Group is that connector.
BUSINESS AS A SERVICE
Founding a business is a big step for someone with a particular talent or trade or expertise. But most company owners are not well versed in all aspects of operating a business. They need support. That’s where 7PM comes in. We provide advisory services for minority-owned businesses at all levels of deal flow and operations to help companies meet contract specifications and maintain sound business practices.
DIVERSITY & INCLUSION
A common theme in today’s marketplace is that there is not enough representation of people from diverse backgrounds in the business world. To be better, we must do better. 7PM will speak up and have tough conversations to create environments conducive to an honest exchange of ideas about the importance of diversity and inclusion.
“A smart person finds the power source to plug into to get more information. You need to find that entity called 7PM and you need to find those experts that know this work and plug into them. Sometimes it’s not as much about having to figure it out yourself as being shown the way. What 7PM does is show you the way. There is nobody who understands this work better.”
— DR. JOHN MARSHALL CHIEF EQUITY OFFICER JEFFERSON COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS
“Many of the entities that have set up diversity goals and mandates have no accountability nor monitoring to enforce it. Thus, there is no compliance. Minority-owned businesses have long shouted about the unfair practices they have endured due to the lack of accountability that the business community has turned a blind eye to. At 7PM Group, we intend to change the status quo.”
— CARL BRAZLEY CEO 7PM GROUP, LLC
“What we have done — I call it the glue. We are the liaison between the owner to the general contractor to make sure that they fully understood the expectation and how the process would work, how ¬to engage us, how we could help them. There’s a ton of accountability.”
