This panel will discuss the marginalization of black women in tech and the lack of funding, support, and credibility they receive. However, given those circumstances black women still are the one group that absolutely drives digital commerce and female buying power, leading the charge in social media justice activism across the Nation, and they are the fastest growing group of entrepreneurs in America. The discussion will then explore how black women can harness that power to ultimately create equity and equality through founding startups in the tech space.
