On 13th October, our CEO Kamran Rashid took part in a unique online discussion with the leaders of other Impact Hubs, on how their respective hubs are attempting to build more just and inclusive cities through Impact Hub – and ensure they provide equal rights and opportunities, as well as better living conditions for all.
The panel included…
- Grace Rodriguez, CEO and Executive Director of Impact Hub Houston
- Kamran Rashid, Co-Founder and CEO of Impact Hub Bradford
- Talita Matos, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Consultant, Co-Founder of Singuê and former CEO of Impact Hub Floripa
Both Grace and Kamran shared the initiatives that are being promoted from Impact Hubs in Houston and Bradford to address the need for a more diverse representation and support of underrepresented communities in their local innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystems.
Talita joined as a subject matter expert. She spoke about the diversity, equity and inclusion driving strategies she has helped design and implement globally through her research on best practices and recommendations to the Impact Hub network.
