Janice Bryant Howroyd gives us a sprinkle of black girl magic.

Breaking the glass ceiling can sometimes be hard to do but in the right pair of stilettos, anything is possible! Janice Bryant Howroyd has shattered the glass ceiling all the way through the billion-dollar floor and has become the first black African-American woman to run and operate a billion dollar business. At 65-years young, Howroyd is at the top of the business industry as the founder and CEO of Act 1 Group, a consulting and business employment agency. Act 1 Group assists employers with obtaining pre-employment screenings and background checks for employees seeking jobs. Whether temporary or permanent, this staffing agency serves in over 19 countries outside the United States and is the largest privately held, woman and minority-owned workforce management company in the U.S.
