Interesting this article mentions “These black women founders have enviable educational backgrounds and career trajectories, earning postgraduate degrees or certifications at a rate of more than six times that of the U.S. population at large. Their two most common alma maters: Harvard and Columbia.”You don’t get better pedigrees or networks,” Finnely said. “They still weren’t raising,” she states.
In my opinion it indicates big name universities don’t mean a damn thing when your a Black woman and doesn’t mean you will be successful despite post graduate degree/certificates. Key word Black Woman. How much student debt are Black women accumulating? Is there a guarantee from these schools the education you receive will out weigh the debt? Will you be able to start a business or make a life for yourself as a Black woman because you went to Harvard/ Columbia? Time to start re-evaluating education and what it really means to be an educated Black woman.
