The Importance of Investing in the Next Generation
From mentorship and advocacy to resources and investment, empowering the next generation to be better leaders and members of society is more important than ever. The issues that were brought to light by the pandemic are not going away any time soon, which is why it’s essential that we provide our youth with the tools to create positive social change and prevent them from making the same mistakes of past generations. The future is already here—now is the time to invest in that future.
Speakers: Dr. Angela Jackson, Illana Raia
Moderator: Lauren Maillian
Access, Mentorship and Funding: Building an Inclusive Entrepreneurship Ecosystem
Women of color entrepreneurs often face challenges from being underestimated to meeting funding and access barriers. The Do You Fellowship was created to help remove some of those barriers and to provide business development opportunities, community and mentorship from CEOs and investors. The aim is to unlock pathways to growth, greater revenue and sustainable success. digitalundivided CEO Lauren Maillian will be joined by some of the Do You Fellows to discuss how to make the entrepreneurial ecosystem more inclusive for this diverse generation of CEOs.
Speakers: Mandy Bowman, Beverly Malbranche, Lisette Scott
Moderator: Lauren Maillian
How Women Are Embracing Digital Transformation to Take Charge of Their Own Health
The COVID-19 pandemic brought the harrowing disparities of our health care system into the spotlight. Despite major technological advances during this time period, which brought us mRNA vaccines and a telehealth boom, the system remains broken—especially for women and people of color. As the fate of Roe v. Wade hangs in the balance and medicine grapples with long-entrenched systemic racism, these women are embracing digital transformation to not only take charge of their own health but also create a more even playing field when it comes to equitable health care for all.
Speakers: Simmone Taitt, Kaile Zagger
Moderator: Emily Cegielski
How to Create Impact as a Female Leader in Male-Dominated Fields
Women in male-dominated fields already face extra hurdles on their way to the top. So, how do you effect change and create impact once you’ve finally climbed the ladder? Despite often having to face attrition and microaggressions, these three women are not only effective and respected leaders but are also changing the narrative around gender and power, proving that female leaders can bring just as much, if not more, to the table as their male counterparts.
Speakers: Alicia Levine, Dia Simms, Flori Marquez
Moderator: Micki Wagner
