Speaking with Nathan Mellor, Ed.D. on the Strata Leadership Show is Erika Lucas, co-founder of StitchCrew, an organization focused on building a more equitable economy through entrepreneurship. In collaboration with NBA Team the Oklahoma City Thunder, she established an accelerator program to support entrepreneurs in the middle of the country. Erika also founded VEST, a curated community of C-suite women working together to expedite the pipeline of more women in power. As she states in her TED Talk: America's Trillion-Dollar Blindspot, Erika's mission is to help close the funding and wealth gap for women and entrepreneurs of color.
