Inspiring change through informed and inclusive innovation. On Access & Opportunity, host Carla Harris, Senior Client Advisor at Morgan Stanley, explores the lived experiences of the people who face systemic inequities and sits down with founders, investors, developers, activists, and educators who are building a more equitable future today.
Articulating Our 'Why'
Guest host Ian Folau turns the tables on Carla and her co-head in the Multicultural Innovation Lab, Alice Vilma, asking why they do the work they do to level the funding landscape for women and multicultural entrepreneurs. Ian brings his perspective as a founder, a graduate of the Multicultural Innovation Lab, and now as a VC, to bear on the work of the lab and the paths that brought Carla and Alice to the work they now do in support of emerging tech-enabled companies.

Today communities of color are in pain as they are forced to navigate the confluence of the Covid-19 pandemic and the continued murder of and violence against black lives. Join us for a special episode of Access & Opportunity, as we continue to try to bridge the gap between the social and economic injustices that oppress communities of color. In this new episode we revisit conversations with black entrepreneurs and investors who have shared their playbook points for how to overcome barriers to success that exist for entrepreneurs because of the color of their skin. Through listening to and elevating their stories we can help identify the economic manifestations of racism, learn from each other and work towards a more equitable society.
