US has a long way to go for achieving equity and diversity by women of colors on corporate boards and with venture funding.

Julie Castro Abrams is the founder, CEO and chair of How Women Lead, a network of 14,000 women. They are top executives, leaders, current and aspiring board members and investors. Julie is also the GP of How Women Invest, an angel investing fund that has invested millions in women owned startups.

Recently, Julie was featured on Forbes magazine for her accomplishments on leading How Women Invest. She’s also on one of the task forces of California Governor Gavin Newsom, “the first partners” initiatives. The interviewer, Joanne Tan, is personally involved with How Women Lead for over two and a half years, both as a member of the Leadership Committee and through helping aspiring executives to get on corporate boards, with their board bios, LinkedIn profiles and resumes.

Joanne describes Julie: “I have come to know Julie really well, and admire her passion, talent, brilliance, leadership, authenticity, and business savviness. All of these are inspiring to me and to lots of women.”

The tide raises ALL boats.  Equity and Diversity is the tidal wave. Equity and Diversity increases the whole pie for everyone, and everyone stands to benefit.

Like it or not, America will be the most diverse country in the world and nobody can turn the tide. For those who don’t like to be politically correct all the time, – I get you; but, there is a right way and a wrong way of dealing with diversity. Either you ride the tidal wave, or better, lead the wave, or you are being dragged kicking and screaming and end up being a “loser”, and get drowned by the inevitable.

Learn from the true leaders like Julia Abrams, it’s not a waste of your time.
