On Saturday, February 15, 2020, The BOSS Network, celebrating 10 years of empowering women of color, presents “The Launch Summit.” The third annual event series meant to educate, empower, and promote minority women in technology. The event will take place during All-Star Weekend at Groupon Corporate Headquarters, in Chicago, IL from 12 p.m. – 3 p.m.
In the technology industry, less than 1 percent of founders who have received venture capital funds are African American or Hispanic. Minority women compose only a fraction of that 1 percent. The time is now to highlight extraordinary women who are breaking down barriers in technology and provide a platform for women to share their experience on how they’ve created and achieved success, provide a blueprint on navigating the workplace, and to educate and support the next generation of women in technology.
