Phenomenal Women: Black, Demonized and Deified

Mar 11, 2019

3:30pm – 4:30pm CT

Recording: Phenomenal Women: Black, Demonized and Deified, Mar 11, 2019

Recently crowned the most educated group in the U.S. & leading all demographics in voter turnout, Black women are still underrepresented in elected office, private sector jobs & corporate leadership. The stats are dire: Black women make up only 3.7% of Congress, receive 0.2% of venture capital funding & hold no Fortune 500 CEO positions. How do we turn around these figures & others? Armed with an arsenal of insights & anecdotes from her work as a community organizer, entertainment industry executive, entrepreneur & progressive commentator on Fox News, Jehmu will examine how Black women are often demonized & deified and how we are reclaiming our time and seizing the reins of power. The talk will layout an innovative framework of policies needed to sustain & support Black women’s leadership.
