Sister Sip: Untapped
September 22, 2017 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Y.A.B. is back at it with our signaure Sister Sip event series but with a twist!
Recently, we received features in the following national publications: NBC News, Blavity, and Madame Noire, just to name a few, discussing the importance of creating more Fortune 500’s created by women, especially those of color. In order to do that, we must first break down the barrier between corporate and entrepreneurship. There has been consistent debate amongst young professionals regarding the corporate realm and entrepreneurship realm, leading to conflict of the types of roles that Millennial women and minority women should be taking when approaching their careers. Hosting the first event of its kind, Y.A.B. in partnership with Bamboo Detroit, WeWork, and Ponyride, wants to challenge how the lack of representation in both forms of business plays into the mentality overall when it comes to creating women CEO’s that will challenge the status quo and further, how the demographics and those that represent them favor in opportunity and positions of power. This event will highlight the challenges seen in both held by those in unique roles and creating partnerships amongst both types of career paths.
Kelli Coleman and Anika Jackson, Co-Founders of The TEN Nail Bar

Additionally we will have a networking session and career mapping workshop including consultations with our panelists and event host partners.
