Representation Matters: Leaders Share Racial Equality Quotes on the Importance of Using Your Platform

07/28/2021 | 09:37pm EDT

Hear from racial equality leaders and advocates at Representation Matters, our annual racial equality summit.

Jul 28, 20214 min read

Over the last year, our society experienced a racial reckoning that was long overdue where deep inequalities were underscored. This was the tone of our fourth annual racial equality event summit, Representation Matters, presented by Deloitte Digital, on July 22, 2021. Our company focused on courageous conversations around racial equality and using our platform to elevate voices from underrepresented communities.

The virtual event serves as a platform to elevate tech's most underrepresented communities - Black, Latinx, Indigenous, and LGBTQ+. We learned from an inspiring lineup of Trailblazers, including executives, social justice activists, mental health advocates, and founders. We heard first-hand industry experience from Morgan Stanley, Blavity, Backstage Capital, We Are All Human, and more.

Systemic change and an increase in representation requires more than conversation; it takes action. And we are dedicated to being guided by and amplifying the voices of Black, Latinx, Indigenous, and LGBTQ+ community members to get to where we need to be. We're not just making space. We're changing the space.

It's important to lead and increase access to the technology industry and business for communities of color and members of the LGBTQ+ community - people who have been 'underestimated' as our panelist, Arlan Hamilton, author, venture catalyst and founder, Backstage Capital, said.

Below are highlights from this year's Representation Matters, our annual racial equality summit.

Why does representation matter?

'Representation, to me, is so important in all lines of work, especially in what I do. What if all lines of work resembled what the world looks like? It would make what we're doing better, more impactful, and relatable to more people.'

- Anthony Ramos, Grammy Award-winning and Emmy-nominated actor / singer and star of the film, 'In The Heights'

'I noticed that when I started shifting and using the word 'underestimated' [versus underrepresented]…people's ears perked up. That competitive nature that brought them to venture capital to begin with - you could see that being awakened. Because if you're underestimated, they're thinking, 'Well, what am I missing?' You are underrepresented if there are not enough of you representing. But to say, 'Wait, I'm underestimated' - that instills a certain empowerment to the person themselves. And I think that's where the real change happens.'

- Arlan Hamilton, author, venture catalyst, and founder, Backstage Capital

How do you use your platform for change?

'At the end of the day, when you look back in hindsight over your life, you will realize the moment you woke up to your own personal power was the moment things really started to shift.'

- Angelica Ross, Emmy-nominated actress, producer, advocate, and founder, TransTech Social Enterprises

Why align your career with purpose?

'When you're fighting for representation and you're fighting for space it's exhausting, and it can be draining. It's important to always be refilling your own cup, because if your cup is not full then you cannot possibly have enough to share.'

- Lupita Nyong'o, actress, producer, and author

'It's so important that Blavity and other media companies who are coming after us know that we don't need other people's permission to tell our own stories. We can do it on our own. We can work with great companies and corporations who care about Black people, Black consumers, and the Black audience in an authentic way. And we don't necessarily have to ask for permission anymore because of our power collectively. '

- Morgan DeBaun, founder and CEO, Blavity Inc.

How can we all close the racial wealth gap?

'We have to move beyond that charitable mindset of sprinkling resources. Getting backpacks to kids is good, but we also have to go deeper in our analysis about the historical and systemic problems that are in place that actually lead to disparities in education for kids of color.'

- Edgar Villanueva, author, philanthropist, and founder, Decolonizing Wealth Project

What's the meaning of Black excellence?

'Black excellence does not mean you're perfect; it means you are living the life that you feel is most true to you. Black excellence is poetry. It's rest. It's Black style. It's Black entrepreneurs and Black people who are working at a company. Black excellence looks like a lot of different things.'

- Luvvie Ajayi, New York Times best-selling author, podcast host, and professional troublemaker
