Thinkific Labs Inc., a leading platform for creating, marketing, and selling online courses, today announced the launch of the third annual Think in Color Summit.
Thinkific’s annual speaker and workshop series is aimed at driving forward diversity and inclusion in business and entrepreneurship by featuring traditionally underrepresented entrepreneurs and giving them a platform to share their expertise. This year’s event features a lineup of notable female entrepreneurs who will provide tips and strategies on how to build and scale a business using digital products and online courses.
“I remember going full-time in my online business and being excited about the journey ahead. But the people in the online business space at that time didn’t look like me at all,” says XayLi Barclay, online course creator and Think in Color host. “I needed to see people who represented my experience and struggles, and learn how to break through barriers to become successful. With Think in Color, we’re excited to bring together a group of remarkable entrepreneurs who are people of color to share how they built their businesses with skill and courage, challenged their fears, and overcame real obstacles on the way to creating their own success stories.”
2021 marks the third year in a row for Thinkific’s Think in Color Summit. The event reflects Thinkific’s ongoing commitment to empowering people of color with the tools and knowledge they need to succeed. Following the Summit, a curated 5-week Think in Color Accelerator coaching program will be available to help attendees immediately apply their learnings and create their first online course.
“I learned so much at Think in Color,” says Herty Zon, a 2020 Summit attendee. “Like the importance of having a strong personal brand, how to own my voice and be confident speaking, to be confident on video, and so much more about different aspects of business. It was extremely valuable, and it honestly exceeded my expectations!”
