LIVESTREAM: Courageous Conversations: The Future of Black Women

Online • February 18, 2020

We must stand alongside women who are unfairly treated, stepping forward together into a just future. Join us online for a panel spotlighting the real-life experiences of outstanding women of color.

Tuesday, February 18, 2020 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM EST

Join Ellevate virtually for this feature event, spotlighting the real-life experiences of a number of outstanding women in our community.

Women of color are massively under-represented (and underpaid) in leadership, the executive suites, and on boards - not to mention their experiences are mostly overlooked in modern literature on women and leadership.

Young girls of color are navigating a world of both opportunity and obstacle. As they grow and find community, purpose and connection, they must also deal with the double-edged sword of racism and misogyny.

We’re gaining momentum. We give platform to the women of color who want to have these conversations, honestly and bravely. We champion those in and out of our community for putting in the work to make actionable change that women and girls of color can draw inspiration from and benefit from. But the fight is far from over.

Our panel will explore, discuss, and break down some of the issues facing women of color in business, dive into their personal stories as young girls, and equip each of us with the information, insight and empathy to be allies in our collective fight for equality, recognition, and advancement.
