Hear innovators discuss their visions for how a better normal could look after this transformational year – how do we create an equitably funded, more inclusive environment for BIPOC innovators/entrepreneurs? After the discussion, we invite the audience to keep the conversation going, brainstorming their own visions for equitable innovation ecosystems – we will recap & share the ideas harvested with a fun custom graphic!
