Inclusivity for Minority Business Owners

We are here for all small business owners.

Izell Marketing Group was founded by Kate Izell, a member of the LGBTQ community. Kate and her wife, Kelly, had to travel from their home state of Tennessee to Washington, DC, in order to receive a marriage certificate on June 27, 2014, almost exactly one year before the Supreme Court ruled that any state’s ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional.

Unfortunately, our nation’s sociopolitical climate does affect our professional lives. Any minority business owner is aware of the possibility that a potential business contact might discriminate against them. Types of discrimination include race, religion, body size, body shape, sexual orientation, gender identity, disabilities, and a number of other characteristics.

Izell Marketing Group is making it a core part of our message to show that we are fully inclusive. We seek to work with small business owners who possess the following qualities:

  1. A passion for their work
  2. An understanding of their business
  3. A collaborative spirit
  4. A hope that we can all bring positive change to our world
