Connecting women of color entrepreneurs with allies


Cocktails & Conversation

Join us!

In March 2022, the Women of Color Connecting 2022 Virtual Summit advanced a powerful narrative about DEI in the entrepreneurial ecosystem and issued a call to action for investors and allies. Now, we're heading to Houston for an in-person event to engage investors, allies, and champions in this movement to help more women of color entrepreneurs grow, scale, and exit. We're keeping it small so that we will have an opportunity to really get to know each other.


Join this invitation-only convening:

Tuesday, October 18

5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. CT
Doors open at 5:00 p.m.

Who should attend:

  • Investors interested in driving returns through inclusion

  • Allies and champions who support women of color entrepreneurs

  • Houston-area entrepreneurs on a grow-scale-exit path

  • Business professionals interested in WOCCON volunteer opportunities 

  • Government officials and policymakers interested in systemic change
