VENUE: In Good Company
ADDRESS: 16 W 23rd St, New York, NY 10010, USA
Why We MUST Build a Richer, More Reflective and Inclusive Experience of Entrepreneurship: The importance of broadening our networks to strengthen our companies and our communities is the next panel in In Good Company's Everyday Leadership series..
The panel will focus on increasing the diversity of our networks and hiring pools, of both employees and service providers. In Good Company is fortunate to have had a diverse membership from its start. We've celebrated, reveled in, and benefitted from a membership which represents various generations, ethnicities, racial groups, and sexual orientations. And we know, both anecdotally and from recent research, that companies are stronger, more successful and make greater impact when their leadership and employee base is diverse.
When someone thinks of a "New York Entrepreneur" we want that image to reflect the diverse world of entrepreneurship that we see and value. We want the women around us to also engage in building, supporting, and promoting a diverse and inclusive experience of entrepreneurship. To honor that vision and to increase the strength of our network and the networks of our members, we have brought together these five fabulous, enterprising panelists who reflect and represent the world of entrepreneurship as we see it.
