worldchangingwomen June 5, 2020

What do you do when you’re on a mission to build meaningful companies, but the cards are stacked against you?“I was experiencing real bias. Plain and simple. And I wasn’t going to wait around until it happened again.”
– Cheryl Contee
In this episode, we’ll be hearing from serial tech entrepreneur, Cheryl Contee. Cheryl co-founded and sold her first company, Attentive.ly, and is now the CEO and Founder of the mission-driven digital agency, Do Big Things. On top of that, Cheryl is the author of Mechanical Bull: How You Can Achieve Startup Success, and she’s an award-winning political blogger. We recorded this conversation on June 3rd, 2020 in the midst of national protests of the murder of George Floyd. In our conversation, we talk about systemic racism in business and building diverse and equitable workplaces.Featured Voices
