Business Insider – January 2021

I want the conversation around supporting women of color as entrepreneurs and founders to become the mainstream conversation.

Since 2018, Black and Latinx women have received only .64% of VC funding. “Our mission is to create a world where all women own their work, where women have wealth,” Lauren Maillian, the CEO of Digital Undivided, said. “It is only through our jobs, our careers, and our work, that is the path to wealth creation. Not just for women, for all people, but women of color get left behind that.”

“We upskill and re-skill and equip women of color to compete in these spaces and places that are not designed for them to succeed,” Maillian said.
