A discussion of how we as women business owners show up in the DE&I conversation
Please join NAWBO -SNV for the 4th part of our Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Series. We have had thoughtful conversations with our Corporate Sponsors, our Chambers and Associations as well as our Police Force, Foundations and Community Organizations. Now it is time to take the conversation to a personal level. How are we as women impacted by, driven by, and supported by the conversations around Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. What steps can we take as women of the community and Women Business Owners to understand how we show up in these conversations. Join us for a raw and real conversation with three amazing women to explore these important, difficult and hopefully empowering conversations.

Part of the college access non-profit 10,000 Degrees in high school and serving as a fifth grade teacher with Teach For America, Las Vegas, Mosca experienced educational inequity in both her personal and professional life. “I am dedicated to empowering change from the community, for the community to ensure students can play the game to change the game to upend structural inequity and systemic racism. The opportunity to attain a college education is the foundation, though not prerequisite, for underrepresented students to become the diverse leaders of their own communities.”
