How to beat the odds—and win, with Morgan DeBaun, founder and CEO of Blavity

EAs one of the few young, black female founders in Silicon Valley, Morgan DeBaun is in a league of her own. And as the founder and CEO of Blavity, she's grown the media and technology company from a small newsletter to the largest digital media brand for black millennials and Gen Z-ers. Under Morgan’s leadership, Blavity has acquired two other media properties and she’s raised more than $9M in venture funding for the business. But that’s only part of Morgan’s entrepreneurial streak. She’s also launched successful summits, like #AfroTech (which just so happens to be thelargesttech conference in Silicon Valley for African Americans)—and, she’s even launched her own skincare line. Achieving all of this, though, wasn’t as easy as it is to list off her accomplishments.

How to ask for what you want—and get it, with Amy Pascal, film producer and business executive

EAh, imposter syndrome. Many of us know it as more than just a buzzword—we know it to be a very real experience of feeling unqualified, unprepared, and unworthy, despite all evidence to the contrary. While nearly 70 percent of all people experience imposter syndrome in their lives according to The Journal of Behavioral Science, it's a hot button issue for women in the workplace in particular, who have more access to male-dominated industries, high-ranking positions, and financial power than ever before. This week, on GirlbossRadio, we hear from business executive and film producer Amy Pascal (she's behind some of your fave female-centric films including Little Women and the 2016 Ghostbusters remake) on how to not feel like a fake when you *are* the real deal. Plus, hear exactly how to ask for more money at any job, how you can elevate other women in your industry, and when you know it's time to walk away.
