Currently, women entrepreneurs receive only four percent of venture capital funding, and women of color receive 30 percent less than their white counterparts.

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.
