BUILD Celebrates International Women's Day:
Meet The Women of BUILDFest National 2021!
We are excited to have Arlan Hamilton, Brandice Daniel, and Heidi Zak personally coach our young entrepreneurs during BUILDFest 2021. These three women are leaders in their field, and are bringing inclusivity, diversity, and equity to their industries. They work with multicultural designers, invest in underestimated businesses, and bring inclusion to the forefront of their brands. Today and everyday, these three female leaders are changing the landscape for Gen E – Building a diverse new generation of entrepreneurial leaders and changemakers.
