Solving Racial and Gender Inequities in a Post-Covid Economy: A Fireside Chat with Nathalie Molina Niño
“We cannot wait for the next relief package—the time to save our people is now. It’s time for federal relief that sounds the alarm and prioritizes those most in danger. There was a pandemic of poverty before the coronavirus. It’s time to fund a cure for both. ” — Newsweek
In her 2018 book from Penguin Random House, Leapfrog: The New Revolution for Women Entrepreneurs, Nathalie Molina Niño provides guidance to “entrepreneurs of all stripes who are fed up with status quo advice — the kind that assumes you have rich friends and family and a public relations team.” Further, in a recent Boston Globe opinion piece, Molina Niño and her co-author reveal that “People of color, particularly from black- and brown-majority communities, have accounted for significantly higher COVID-19 related deaths; the survival rates of their businesses are positioned to follow a similar trajectory.”
In this live virtual fireside chat, Impact Entrepreneur’s Laurie Lane-Zucker welcomes Nathalie Molina Niño to discuss the realities facing entrepreneurs of color and strategies for addressing racial and gender inequities in a post-coronavirus economy.
