Why business isn't for brown girls

Society, culture and our own insecurities tell us that business isn't for the average coloured or cultured person. That the odds are against us. This workshop will play on that irony and share key skills, which implemented short and long term can help a women of colour propel as a business leader, female founder and share her Intrapreneurial mindset to build confidence. This workshop is about sharing the knowledge, failures and tricks which have inevitablely helped brown girls rise and can enable us to beat those odds.
