299: Janice Bryant Howroyd | First African American Woman To Run A $1-Billion Business

Play
Read more
Growing up in the segregated South in a family of eleven children and nurtured by a loving mother and father, Janice Bryant Howroyd faced racism and sexism in addition to the challenges faced by every new business owner. None of that stopped her from becoming the first black woman to own a billion-dollar business.

Janice Bryant Howroyd, a North Carolina native, left her hometown in 1976 armed with $900. Two years later she founded ActOne, which she grew into a multibillion-dollar global organization that now leads the human resources industry. With 2,000+ employees across more than twenty countries, ActOne Group is the largest privately held, woman-owned workforce solutions company in the world. A businesswoman, entrepreneur, educator, and ambassador, Janice has also worked with U.S. presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama. In 2016 she was appointed by President Obama as an advisor on HBCUs (Historically Black Colleges and Universities), and continues her service. Her passion for education, mentorship, and self-empowerment initiatives has earned her extensive professional and philanthropic recognition. Her passion to support women and next generations in achieving their dreams of self fulfillment are key motivators to her sharing her story.

175: REWIND: Meet Janice Bryant Howroyd: The first African American Woman To Run A $1-Billion Business

Play
Read more
Today’s episode is a REWIND episode with Janice Bryant Howroyd, the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of The ACT-1 Group, the largest privately held, woman-owned workforce solutions company founded in the U.S. I love this episode because Janice exudes confidence, energy, and just makes you want to walk into a room and take up space.  As Auntie Janice (as I now refer to her in my head) likes to say, “knowledge married to experience breeds confidence.” When you have the experience and knowledge you must own that confidence. I listened to this episode twice as I was riding to the Today Show for my appearance in August 2018, and it really did give me confidence.  I often re-listen to this episode whenever I’m nervous about rising to a new level in my business.  I’m excited for you to hear Janice share how she became the first African American woman to operate a company that generates more than $1 billion in annual revenue.

Janice Bryant Howroyd is known for being the first African American woman to self- start a multi billion dollar business. She is the founder and CEO of the ActOne Group, the largest privately held, minority woman owned human resource company, which focuses on the recruitment of talent and technology that employs predictive analytics to support companies in their planning and hiring.

Bush, and President Barack Obama. Janice was ranked on Forbes’s 2017 list of America’s Richest Self- Made Women, a direct result of her efforts and dedication to building an organization (now with over 2200 employees in 19 countries helping over 17,000 clients) that has always been firmly committed to keeping the humanity in human resources.

Like a doctor analyzes the inner workings of her patients, Janice’s active industry involvement allows her to assess the inner workings of countless organizations. Armed with decades of knowledge, Janice will inspire us to find the legal profession’s own “prescription” for happiness.
