Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Currently, women entrepreneurs receive only four percent of venture capital funding, and women of color receive 30 percent less than their white counterparts. Even worse, the number of women who are venture capitalists is on a downward slide. Yet study after study shows that investing in women delivers strong returns. Join this powerhouse panel of women leading the fields of entrepreneurship and philanthropy to explore why investing in women is one of the smartest investments we can make -- and how investing with a gender lens can be a powerful tool to help women reverse decades of injustice and discrimination.
