The top barriers for women building equity include limited access to capital, networks, and mentors. Economic Mobility Centers will launch in 2021 and be strategically placed throughout Tarrant County neighborhoods with concentrated poverty in an effort to address gender and racial disparities for underserved entrepreneurs. 

In partnership with JPMorgan Chase & Co. and NEXT STREET, CTL released the Transform Tarrant County from Within Report & Action Roadmap — which conducted extensive research on income-restricted areas, entrepreneurs, and disparities in financial resources throughout Tarrant County.
