The Queen Boss Series was born from our years of work here at Sheryl Grant Enterprises (SGE): listening to, having dialogue about, and better understanding the experiences of Women in the Oakland Bay Area, Silicon Valley, and others across the US & internationally. What we found was that women--in astounding numbers across the nation--are deciding to lay down their positions in Corporate America, deciding instead to venture out into the world of small businesses, engaging in work on their own terms, and repurposing their talents to create impactful change through entrepreneurship.
As we listened more deeply, we found that the decision for women to pursue self-employment was all too often rooted in common experiences working in places like Corporate America, but also in the public sector as well. Being ignored, talked over, underestimated, overburdened and under-resourced were among the most frequent responses that we heard, circumstances that have ultimately pushed women everywhere--especially women and girls of color--past a societal breaking point.
#QueenBoss is part of our response to what we've learned through our research: Through our Kinect Dots Network and in partnership with Caroline Toler, we've developed the Queen Boss Series of events, podcasts, educational content and digital media to highlight emerging women entrepreneurs and social entrepreneurs, create a collaborative and truly accessible space to share information and insight, provide digital mentorship from leading executives and business owners in Silicon Valley, to celebrate OURSELVES, and to feature the revolutionary work of Women in The Bay and beyond!
