Our closing plenary speaker is Tiffany Hudson. Tiffany Hudson is co-founder of The Nova Collective, a corporate learning and communications firm that delivers engaging content and experiential training for leading organizations — all with an explicit focus on diversity, equity and inclusion. They work with F1000 organizations to create cultural evolutions and center the voices of the t00-often-marginalized.
Tiffany's passion for true equity in the workplace propelled her to quit her promising corporate career, and bring her passion and working life together to challenge the ideas of «Business As Usual».
As a Black lesbian, Tiffany has witnessed inequity throughout her journey and has refused to have her identities minimized along the way. She has been, and remains, determined to succeed because of her unique perspective and experiences — not in spite of them. During this session, Tiffany will share her journey of entrepreneurship and offer guiding principles and practices for owning your success as an LGBT+ entrepreneur.
Space is limited so register today. The event is free for Chamber members and $10 for non-members. Sponsorship opportunities are available.
