As part of the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Council activities, Kinecta Federal Credit Union, a leading financial services provider in the South Bay, celebrated black-owned businesses by partnering with the organization Spicy Green Book for its second market for Food in Manhattan Beach.

The event was held in the parking lot of Kinecta’s Manhattan Beach headquarters and branch, located at 1440 Rosecrans Ave., on June 11 from 12pm to 7pm.

“At Kinecta, we are committed to partnerships and activities that celebrate our diverse communities and populations,” said Kim Graham, Vice President, Human Resources and Talent Development at Kinecta.

“It’s an honor to partner with Spicy Green Book for the second year in a row to help support black-owned businesses.”

Spicy Green Book founder Danilo Batson created the Spicy Green Book organization in 2020 to promote an “intentional economy” where consumers make purposeful decisions about where and how they spend their money. With the concept of Eating with Intention, it empowers people to enjoy fantastic food while using their purchasing power to create a fairer society.

Launched in 2020, Kinecta’s DEI Council supports employee resource groups that are based on similar interests, identities, and life experiences, such as race, gender, and sexuality. These groups raise awareness and give voice to the underrepresented, allowing employees to network and socialize as well as work on their professional development.
