Former BET Networks general counsel and CEO Debra Lee recently hosted a fireside chat between Tekedra Mawakana, Waymo LLC chief operating officer, and Lisa Gelobter, tEQuitable Inc. CEO and co-founder, to highlight the investing power women of color have.

Mawakana, who started her career at Steptoe & Johnson like Lee, discussed parlaying her lawyerly experiences into venture capital with Gelobter, who worked alongside Lee at BET as chief digital officer. “Tech Femme Supremacy: The Intersection of Innovation and Advocacy” was sponsored by Lee’s organization, Leading Women Defined, which defines itself as a “gathering of prominent African American women and their allies as they engage in dialogue focused on actionable solutions to positively impact the community and create equal opportunities for women.”
