WorkPride Panel: Start-Up Unicorns

According to McKinseys' latest estimate in Diversity and Inclusion - it is estimated that $12 trillion in additional GDP could be generated if the gender gap is narrowed by 2025 and $2 billion in potential revenue could be created if financial inclusion efforts broaden service for black Amercians.

Diversity wins? Is the business case for diversity and inclusion stronger than ever? How easy or difficult is it to build a diverse and inclusive organization culture? What is the future of D&I in the workplace after the global pandemic?

    Director / Founder
    Across Rainbows
    Previously a business and marketing strategist and business coach, I founded Across Rainbows with my son Nick, a few years ago, but it was many years in the making. It was born from wanting to fix and improve what affected us personally: wasting too much of our energy and potential by trying to please other people’s expectations. We have an unrelenting determination and desire to transform the LGBTQ+ community so that every single LGBTQ+ person on the planet is heard, is visible, and is treated as a human being. I believe that nurturing and cultivating our LGBTQ+ identity, relationships and purpose help us to navigate through the world and our role in it, with resilience and creativity. I am a firm believer in the transformative power of connections, storytelling, kindness, and compassion and their ability to engage and inspire people to greatness.
