We are excited to announce our newest themed month in October, Black Leaders Month.
Our very own Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Steering Committee has worked on this themed month in partnership with Google for Startups to celebrate Black Leaders, and get as many Black Leaders on our stages as possible.
Although we celebrate diverse leaders all year round; during #BlackLeadersMonth we are celebrating the amazing, incredible, intelligent (we could go on and on) under-represented leaders who make the tech, investor and startup landscapes what they are today.
Diversity includes how people differ, encompassing the different characteristics that make one individual or group different from another.
Equity is the fair treatment, access, opportunity, and advancement for all people, while at the same time striving to identify and eliminate barriers that have prevented the full participation of some groups.
Inclusion is the act of creating environments in which any individual or group can be and feel welcomed, respected, supported, and valued to fully participate.
Let’s engage in discussing ways to drive greater inclusion in the Startup Ecosystem.
