IT'S YOUR GIRL, LAURA -- BUSINESS
EDUCATOR, LOVER OF PEOPLE, COMMUNITY
ADVOCATE, AND ENTREPRENUER!
From the classroom to the boardroom. Check out a few of the projects I am currently working on.
In August, 2020, I launched a tech company that would allow businesses to receive constructive feedback from patrons regarding biases, blind-spots, and overt racist experiences. Patrons, especially people of color, could connect to the space in complete anonymity and security to bring their voices directly to those in the institution that are able to make the necessary changes to policy and culture.
I've since joined forces with other innovators, professionals, and allies to bring this web application to market later this year (2021), and we are now in Round 2 of funding.
An informational and social cooperative dedicated to the personal and collective growth and empowerment of non-men of color. This group resides as an online space currently and attracts members globally. We support, uplift, and educate one another in a myriad of ways.
To this group I have helped create seasonal educational offerings from small business/entrepreneurship support, Faith-based programming, and community building LIVE and in person events in multiple locations around the country.
An expression of Black beauty and sisterhood, through honest dialogue and intentional conversation. Every month, we invite Black women from various backgrounds, identities, faiths; and all things that make us so dynamic, to bring their voices to the table.
From these talks, we seek to cultivate a space for learning, healing, and growth. Our audiences can expect lots of humor, uncensored social commentary on all things us, and deeper reflections at the source of our perspectives and perceptions about our culture.
