Singularity University’s Women’s Impact Network (WIN) is thrilled to present a dialogue on building opportunities for inclusivity in entrepreneurship. WIN passionately works to increase access to the information and tools that enable communities around the world to support women and female-identifying folks in achieving their highest potential.
To meet these aims, WIN offers an Exponential Equity Webinar series featuring people working on solutions related to gender, diversity, inclusion, justice, and equity—and thoughts on how to scale these efforts exponentially.
This webinar addresses the topic of building and scaling opportunities for women entrepreneurs. You’ll hear an important dialogue between Barbara Silva and Gary Urteaga, along with WIN co-chairs Molly Pyle and Stacy Maldonado.
