Numbers show Black women are still being paid far less than men. In Seattle, a group of prominent black women came together to discuss how they can tackle the wage gap.

“Jodi-Ann is a rare, magical kind of public speaker who does two things at the same time: she introduces concepts, ideas, and frameworks in an engaging, relatable, and often hilarious way, while at the same time making her audience feel smart, special and included while they’re learning new things.

She has a warm generous presence as a speaker, and she’s eminently trustworthy. She doesn’t sugarcoat things and she grounds her conculsions in lived experience and hard data.”
