The staggering underrepresentation of people of color and women in the tech and entrepreneurial spaces has been well-documented. Large companies promise they’ll do better, but still struggle to attract and retain diverse talent. Diverse Disruptors is an upcoming podcast from 88Nine Radio Milwaukee about those leaders who found their own way to innovate, and did so with inclusion and accessibility at the forefront, rather than an afterthought. 

Join 88Nine’s Director of Digital Strategy and Innovation Tarik Moody and Amanda DoAmaral, Founder & CEO of Milwaukee’s Fiveable, for a pilot episode of Diverse Disruptors. Tarik and Amanda will discuss: 
  • Her journey from teacher to startup founder
  • Challenges on building a startup and moving to Milwaukee
  • Future of remote learning and recent investment and the future of Fiveable
This pilot episode is a preview of what’s to come in the full first season of Diverse Disruptors coming in early 2021, featuring guests from Undock, Blue Studios, Black Innovation Alliance and more.
