In a world of socio-economic issues, gender equity is an issue millions of people must deal with globally. It often feels like social issues are not the same as business issues. The cold hard fact is that businesses are in business for profit and social issues rarely garner the focus or resources needed to resolve them. I recently talked with Katica Roy, Gender Economist, CEO and Founder of Pipeline an AI-driven platform for gender equity. She shared her passion with me for turning this issue into an opportunity for organizations.
One of the things we embrace at Gravity Speakers is giving a voice and platform to underrepresented groups. Often times these underrepresented groups display incredible courage, overcoming the odds and systems that work against them and alienate them. We are proud to have an amazing group of African-American speakers, leaders, and activists in our network of speakers. Let’s take a look at some Black leaders in history and how their principles of leadership are still present in the next generation of black leadership.
At Gravity Speakers we aren’t just representing the top thought leaders and speakers from around the globe, we purposefully seek out the exceptional yet underrepresented voices that need to be heard.

It’s time to rethink how you use 3rd parties to solve your business problems. Consultants can push your business into seeing things in a new way, but so can speakers. The difference is speakers don’t need countless hours, meetings, and access to all aspects of your business. Gravity Speakers can help you select speakers who address the issues your business is having or areas you want to strengthen within your organization.
