The Future is Multi-Hyphenated in the Era of Community

Jay Z said it best: I’m not a businessman, I’m a business, man. The multi-hyphenation of individuals is the future. It will be the norm for people to have a portfolio of companies and employment, thanks to market shifts in employment (The Great Resignation, COVID catalyzed), lack of life satisfaction in status quo work environments, and the need to generate revenue to stay afloat and make ends meet.

In her talk, Lolita Taub explains why the future is multi-hyphenated in the era of community and how organizations can leverage this new market shift in creating or maintaining their edge.

Latinx Allyship, Power, and Belonging

A leadership + motivational fireside chat.

Host a candid leadership and motivational 1-hour fireside-chat about Latinx allyship, power, and belonging, that goes beyond generic Latinx discussion, brings awareness and understanding of the complexity of the Latinx experience in the workplace, tech, finance, and U.S. The chat will provide employees with differentiated content around real matters or themes that affect the Latinx community and our Allies.


  1. Power and allyship: Underrepresentation can make it difficult for Latinx to achieve their goals and aspirations. And even when companies understand the benefits of greater diversity and inclusion, there is a perception that it will take a long time for change to occur. We can change that with the power of allyship.
  2. Belonging and allyship: Identity is complex and not binary — people can (and do) associate to multiple identities on a spectrum based on gender, race, orientation, etc. This intersectionality is important to recognize not only for those in the Latinx community but for Allies.

Audience take-away:Latinx members can walk away with a strategy or tactic to have conversations with their peers regarding their identity and/or advancing their careers.

Who this is for:Professionals, allies, and companies that welcome individuals and support the attraction, engagement, and growth of their Latinx talent while celebrating the diverse cultures within this community.

What people are saying:“I enjoyed hearing your story today. I am a Latinx ally who is looking for ways to support this awesome community in and outside of work. I really loved your spirit, zeal and candor today. Thank you for spending time with us and helping people like myself learn about your culture, how to help and what to be aware of. You rock!” – LK

Raising Inclusive AI: How to Keep Bias Out

A disruption and innovation workshop.

In this 1-hour workshop and Q&A session, we create an opportunity for individuals to widen their perspective on bias in artificial intelligence (AI). Often the concept of AI gets watered down to the ideology that it is neutral and therefore does not include discussions of race, class, sex, etc. Through this workshop, Lolita discusses the various ways in which AI can both address and amplify bias, using historical and contemporary examples.


  1. AI overview
  2. AI disruption and innovation: We discuss the impact of AI on our personal and professional lives.
  3. Interactive AI and bias group and individual exercise: Through a couple of exercises we witness first-hand how AI can both amplify and address bias
  4. Ensuring inclusive AI: We go over how techie and non-techie people can address and keep bias out.

Audience take-away:Audience members, both technical and non-technical, can walk away curious, with a clear understanding of AI basics, its implications, and tactics to combat bias in AI in and out of work.

Who this is for:Students, employees, and organizations that want to expand their community’s understanding of bleeding-edge technologies, their implications on humanity, and what we can do to make sure tech is inclusive.

What people are saying:“It was great hearing you speak, and briefly meeting you today. Thank you again for sharing your story, your passion, and your leadership counsel. As I’ve said to many who couldn’t join today, you were truly remarkable. Keep serving your passion – you’re having an impact!” – MM
