Nikita: Symba is on a mission to open up the workforce. Over twelve million students do not have access to participate in an internship program, even though they seek the opportunity. We interviewed 250+ talent leaders and discovered that employers lack the necessary tools and resources to scale accessible internships and needed a solution. Symba’s technology and resources help talent leaders take their programs hybrid or remote, opening their internships to candidates based anywhere with internet access.
Kenneth: Thanks for having me, Spiffy! Through The Trans Capitalist L.L.C, I am addressing financial illiteracy within the LGBTQIA+ community, heavily focused on the transgender community. The statistics are horrible for the transgender community, especially trans* people of color. Did you know that the trans* people of color unemployment rate is four times higher than the national average? Did you know that it's said that trans* people are likely to have a salary of $10k/ year? These statistics are accurate because I lived that life where I was transitioning (female to male) myself. So, I want to make sure that any trans people or LGBTQIA+ do not have to go through that, or if they did, I want to make sure I can help them get back on their feet to feel empowered, knowledgeable, and inspired.
