She4All Pitch Competition: Giving Care and Growing Companies

Family caregiving responsibilities have historically fallen on women — a fact that became even clearer during the pandemic. More than one in ten women report that they have new caregiving responsibilities as a result of the pandemic. And throughout all of it, women entrepreneurs have cared for family members and raised children while keeping their businesses afloat during COVID-19. She4All: Giving Care and Growing Companies aims to bring visibility and support to women entrepreneurs who are not only business owners, but also mothers or caregivers. Five finalists will compete by giving their best business pitches to our panel of influential leaders. The Grand Prize? Invaluable marketing resources and services worth more than $76,500 in value and cash prize of $15,000. This event is a hybrid event, with the option to attend in-person in NYC OR virtually.

Luminary's "Get Lit" Book Club: The Other Black Girl by Zakiya Dalila Harris

Come meet up with Luminary's "Get Lit" Book Club- a time for our Luminary community to read and connect over books! The Book Club meets monthly to discuss books written by, for, or about women. This month's book is - The Other Black Girl by Zakiya Dalila Harris. Twenty-six-year-old editorial assistant Nella Rogers is tired of being the only Black employee at Wagner Books. Fed up with the isolation and the micro-aggressions, she's thrilled when Hazel starts working in the cubicle beside hers. They've only just started comparing natural hair care regimens, though, when a string of uncomfortable events cause Nella to become Public Enemy Number One and Hazel, the Office Darling, and Nella is left in the dust. Dark, funny and furiously entertaining, The Other Black Girl will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very last twist.
