Wow!
Audrey Felter

If we invest in reparations for Black American Descendants of Slavery that will be the boldest step to repair the wealth divide!
Audrey Felter
47:52
The numbers showed that. 52% of white women voted Trump if I recall.
Audrey Felter
48:35
black women don't need to change. It looks like white women need to, according to the numbers.
Sara Mengesha
49:55
Yeah, I couldn’t hear that
Susan Gates
49:56
Please repeat!
FRANCI GIRARD
49:58

Leah Battin

I couldn’t hear it.

(or the earlier stats)
Windy Borman
53:16
@Audrey: As a white woman, I agree that white women need to be better allies. I looked up the stats and while 52% of white women said they voted for Trump, the voter data was actually 47%. “According to a later analysis that experts consider more reliable, a study published in August by the Pew Research Center, the percentage of white women who voted for Trump was actually 47%, compared to 45% for Clinton.” https://time.com/5422644/trump-white-women-2016/

If politicians listen to donors and corporations, this is all the more reason to close the wealth gap so women can start and fund more businesses—and donate to causes!
Melody Caban
58:10
Love that
Audrey Felter
59:28
@Windy Borman, that means you still have a lot of work to do. What percentage of black women vote democratic in this last election? 90% if I'm not mistaken.
Laure Cast

Do you see an opportunity to bring conversation into the workplace about status inequities and social justice?
Kimberly Douglass
01:01:20
Nnena.. i have been saying the EXACT same thing.. amy cooper.. covid... attention
Laure Cast
01:01:32
(Especially when it’s not just the people who are negatively affected by the inequity in the conversation)
Audrey Felter
01:05:27
Black American Descendants of slavery are very underrepresented. How do we include them into the process of business ownership? Any advice?
laura brounstein
01:08:00
Painkiller not vitamin! I love that!
Giovanna Lockhart
01:08:38
Loving these medical metaphors
Cindy Gross
01:09:50
perfection, individualism, disconnect from community, lack of self-care all perpetuate white supremacy
Audrey Felter
01:10:10
Right!
Laure Cast
01:10:22
Overconfidence is a result of having privilege, and it’s rewarded in SV and in our culture
Kimberly Douglass
01:12:36
How do you convince people who have been punished for speaking up to go big?
Audrey Felter
01:13:24
Reparations is the elephant in the room. How can we have massive system change without talking about Black American reparations? Wouldn't that be the most progressive way to address these issues?
Cindy Gross
01:13:37
Kimberly I would ask how do you make it safe and rewarding for us to speak up?
Kimberly Douglass
01:14:32
thanks. safety is key.
Kimberly Douglass
01:16:10
it's not just the big decision makers but the administrative assistants, eg, that are gate keepers
Audrey Felter
01:16:26
True!
Kimberly Douglass
01:16:34
they meed to believe they are supposed to be different
laura brounstein
01:16:34
