Women of Color Connecting Virtual Summit
Age recommendation: Adults only
The Institute For Entrepreneurial Leadership is hosting the 5th Annual Women of Color Connecting Virtual Summit (WOCCON 2023) March 7-9, a perfect opportunity for allies, champions, policy makers, venture capitalists and investors, supporters and women of color entrepreneurs and founders to come together to find ways to open doors for Black and Brown female founders.
WOCCON Summit 2023 is an invitation-only virtual convening of thought leaders, policy-makers, and members from the ally and investor communities who want to deepen their understanding of the systemic barriers that continue to keep women of color entrepreneurs locked out. The summit creates a safe space for open conversation and honest dialogue to help attendees move toward action in creating a more inclusive entrepreneurial ecosystem.
Highlights of WOCCON Summit 2023 include the panel Insights From Women of Color Entrepreneurs, featuring three powerful women of color founders who are making their mark on the world: Kim Roxie, founder, Lamik Beauty, Houston; Emelyn Stuart, CEO, Stuart Cinema & Cafe, Brooklyn, NY; and Robin Wilson, founder, Robin Wilson Home, New York, NY. The panel discussion will explore unique challenges that Women of Color face trying to launch, grow and scale.
