On Monday, April 6, Clinton Foundation Vice Chair Chelsea Clinton will join Jack Dorsey, CEO of Square, the Chairman of Twitter, and a founder of both, to host Women’s Entrepreneurship: A No Ceilings Conversation at Spelman College.

They will be joined by Beverly Daniel Tatum, President of Spelman College, Tina Wells, CEO of Buzz Marketing, Cherita Kempson, Co-Founder of Endulge Cupcakes, Spelman students and local business owners to discuss what works in women’s entrepreneurship.

New data recently released by No Ceilings finds that critical barriers to women’s full economic participation remain — both in the United States and abroad. Monday’s event will highlight the ways in which new technologies are empowering small businesses and aspiring entrepreneurs. It will also discuss how young women in STEM can excel through programs like College Code Camp — a five-day immersion program that brings together women engineering students to build a stronger community around women in technology.

Women’s Entrepreneurship: A No Ceilings Conversation is the continuation in a series of live and virtual discussions designed to hear directly from women and girls, as well as men and boys, about how to support and expand opportunities for all. This conversation follows the release of the No Ceilings Full Participation Report on March 9, which analyzes data from more than 190 countries on the gains made for women and girls over the last twenty years, and the gaps that still remain, as well as the No Ceilings Full Participation Plan, which provides a roadmap to close gaps in full participation.
