This year's Summit

The Currency of Inclusion: Connecting the Dots between Power, Money, and Equity

We walked in The Fourth Floor and walked out The Fourth Effect! 

We were thrilled to celebrate our rebrand as well as announce the launch of our UNSTOPPABLE campaign and our partnership with Play Money! to our attendees of over 150 change makers and leaders.

Thank you to all of our amazing speakers who drove home the point that a systems change is necessary and that Diversity & Inclusion is essential and profitable. Equity in the investment and innovation ecosystem will create better products, better companies and more pie for all.
