It’s not often that you leave an event as inspired by the audience as the A-list line-up of speakers who are leaders on the front lines of the industry.

The venue was packed, primarily with Millennial women of color. It was clearly the first time many had seen themselves as a majority in a business setting and they were emotional. Even some of the seasoned panelists had watery eyes as the community was united by highly personal stories of courage and optimism.
