What happens when you raise a generation of women to be bold, confident leaders who aspire to greatness in every area of their lives? They grow up to be leaders who embody true bossiness – demanding excellence of themselves, and inspiring excellence in everyone around them.

Jean Brownhill (Founder and CEO, Sweeten) is no stranger to innovation. Heralded as one of the “Most Innovative Women Founders in America” by Inc. Magazine, in 2015 she was one of 11 Black women to have raised $1mm in venture capital for her company, Sweeten.

To excel in your career, you have to be able to pair ambition with passion. But how do you get an audience to share that excitement? Journalists do it every day—on deadline. Join journalist Iris Mansour, for a special Declare workshop as she distills years of award-winning journalism into an impactful teaching on how to turn any topic into something that audiences care about.
Iris has reported on everything from the election campaign trail to hostage takings for outlets like Fortune, Mashable and Reuters. With over a decade of experience, and having worked with media giants like Spotify and HBO, she understands storytelling like no other.
In this workshop, Iris will reveal how she has distilled the key elements of a great story into a highly-effective technique called micro-storytelling. Learn how to use journalistic tactics to make any workplace communication into a powerful statement, whether it be an email, a presentation, or even remarks in a meeting. By the end of the session, you’ll be able to capture an audience’s attention—from leadership, to colleagues and clients—and get their buy-in.
In an ideal world, hiring, promotions, and career progress would all be based on meritocracy. In short, you earn what you deserve. While hard work is certainly an essential vehicle for advancement, there are also subtle dynamics that help to shape what opportunities are afforded to who, how resources are distributed, and ultimately how success is measured and rewarded.
Lauren States (Tech Executive, Independent Director) spent three decades as a leader at IBM and now is an independent director on the boards of Clean Harbors, Inc., Diebold Nixdorf, Incorporated, and Webster Financial Corporation. She has completed a Fellowship with Harvard University’s Advanced Leadership Initiative and has received several prestigious awards for her work in the tech industry. Stephanie Latham has spent her career mentoring, sponsoring and supporting women to achieve their ambitions. As the Director of Technology and Mobile & Connectivity Industries at Facebook, she has helped marketers and agencies navigate the changing digital landscape, propelling advertising success for her clients. Together, these women will explain how there is so much more to a successful, ambitious career than being technically skilled.
Declare is honored to partner with Facebook to bring you a discussion about successfully navigating these dynamics across industries and functions. Lauren will discuss how she was able to rise into management positions and what you need to know for your own career advancement. We’ll come away with a better understanding of how meritocracy actually works in practice, how people from underrepresented groups can benefit within that structure, and what we can all do – regardless of position or background – to help expand opportunity for everyone.
Venture capital is one of the hottest spaces in finance, driving innovation and influencing the way we look at the world. It’s also one of the starkest spaces for diversity, both in the demographics of its investors and the founders it backs.
