If there is one word that dominated the media landscape this past year, it’s diversity. The Black Lives Matter movement brought to light a whopping disparity in startup funding: Black women have received only 0.06% of all Venture Funding since 2009.
In this power-packed fireside chat, we meet the powerhouse woman leading a movement to change that: Lauren Maillian, CEO of Digital Undivided.
Join us in this intimate conversation, to uncover the story of a woman who started a successful Winery when she was still not even old enough to drink, and went on to become the first Black woman to start an early-stage venture capital fund.
Listen to Lauren’s inspiring advice, as she invites us to challenge people’s expectations and to find that hidden voice inside.
