Who has a seat at the table? How can companies switch from conversation to implementation on diversity and inclusion efforts?

All-female founding teams have raised only 2.8% of all VC funding over the past decade. For Black and Latinx women led startups, that number is less than 0.5%. This Morgan Stanley study showed that the gap resulted in $4.4 million of missed potential revenue, in 2012, two years shy of a decade today. Yet, this research by American Express shows that the underfunded female demographic is launching the most startups in America.
