Paving the Way for Women of Color with digitalundivided's Lauren Maillian
In 2012 an organization called digitalundivided (DID) was founded with the mission of using innovation to create systemic change by catalyzing economic growth for Black and Latinx communities through women entrepreneurs. DID's various initiatives from technology, mentorship and community building have helped women of color recognize their visions and build upon their excellence to launch myriad companies.
This past year, board member Lauren Maillan was tapped as the new CEO of DID to bring her depth of experience as a brand marketer, public personality and entrepreneur to lead the company through the difficult days of COVID and beyond.
Lauren’s story is anything but typical. She’s a powerful force who sets an extreme example of what’s possible, lighting the path of progress for others to follow. Perhaps the most intriguing part of her story is how it all began as the youngest self-made winery owner in the country. Since then she hasn’t stopped building, iterating and creating for a second and now her mission is to bring her spirit and energy to hundreds of powerful and brilliant women of color to help them realize their dreams.
