Last week, Startup Phenomenon Women was most privileged to welcome Levo League’s Chief Leadership Officer, Tiffany Dufu. Tiffany took the audience by storm with her inspirational, sentimental, and very poignant discussion of rounding up and asking for what you want. Here is a brief video from the Levo League website that illustrates the importance of women being assertive in their careers. Not only is this great advice for working professionals in corporate roles, it’s incredibly important for female entrepreneurs as well. Consider that 70% of startups are male-led. And that women-led startups secure significantly less funding than those of their male counterparts, on average. The gender gap continues to close in entrepreneurial communities and corporate alike, but there’s still a long way to go.
