Race in Social Innovation: A Panel of Perspectives

March 23 @ 6:00 PM- 7:30 PM

Free

Nearly 30 percent of all businesses in the United States are minority-owned, yet people of color still face challenges in starting ventures and raising capital, including those working in the social impact space.

How can social innovation be more diverse, equitable, and inclusive, particularly around racial equity? How can people of color effectively leverage their unique assets and overcome common challenges when working in social innovation?

Join the Center for the Advancement of Social Entrepreneurship (CASE) and Duke Innovation & Entrepreneurship Initiative (Duke I&E) as they bring together leaders of color in social innovation to tackle these questions and more at Race in Social Innovation: A Panel of Perspectives.

This event will look at their unique perspectives and expertise as people of color in building solutions to wide ranging social innovation issues, challenges they have faced in their journeys and lessons learned along the way. With experiences in the for-profit, nonprofit and philanthropic sectors, the panel discussion will show how different organizations tackle social challenges in their own ways.

**This event is open to all in the Triangle community.
