Supporting Youth in Entrepreneurship

Recording: Supporting Youth in Entrepreneurship, Mar 11, 2019

95% of Fortune 500 CEOs are white males. By supporting youth innovation, we can change that statistic. Hear from Gen Z entrepreneurs on why a breeding ground for youth entrepreneurial involvement is critical to shifting the narrative for minorities in corporate culture. Their personal experiences of reluctance due to intimidation and condescension due to adolescence have led them to determinedly prove their maturity in professional atmospheres. These youth will discuss innovative instruments which can be used to challenge inequalities perpetuated by institutionalized forms of bias. How can you help bridge the gap between the changemakers of today and disruptors of tomorrow?

Our panelists are youth leaders from across the country and met at a University of Pennsylvania startup incubator.
