Tech people

Thinkific Labs Inc. (“Thinkific”), a leading platform for creating, marketing, and selling online learning products, will host  ‘Think in Color Los Angeles’ — a dynamic, in-person event aimed at celebrating and supporting underrepresented women and BIPOC entrepreneurs.

Bringing together a diverse lineup of Creator Educators, the event’s notable roster of speakers features leading lights from across the Creator economy. The event’s theme ‘Head of the Table‘ encourages women to go beyond having a seat at the table and to chart their own unique path to success. Speakers will collectively offer attendees frank advice and expert insights into building and scaling their online businesses while also seeking to address the real challenges that impact all Creators but disproportionately women and BIPOC entrepreneurs.

Commenting on the importance of Think in Color for underrepresented Creators, speaker Cicely Blain, says, “No matter where they are in their journeys as Creators, it’s critical that entrepreneurs who face systemic barriers – particularly BIPOC, women, trans and non-binary folks — have a space where they can learn from, and connect with other Creators who share their lived experience and have carved out their own paths as successful business owners. Think in Color provides a powerful space for connection and solidarity, which are essential for combatting imposter syndrome, building resilience and developing the tools to avoid burnout.”

Speakers at Think in Color LA span several industries from wealth planning, to executive presence and anti-racism and represent Creator Educators at various stages of the business journey from recently launched, to experts who have built multi-million dollar knowledge-based businesses.

Speakers include:

Ellie Diop – Founder and CEO of Ellie Talks Money and Ellievated Academy, Ellie is a business strategist, author, and speaker.

Cicely Blain – As an anti-racism consultant and Founder of Bakau Consulting, Cicely brings highly sought-after expertise in cultivating inclusive communities.

Jessica Chen – Global communication expert and CEO at Soulcast Media, Jessica is an Emmy-Award winner known for communication expertise.

Xayli Barclay – Visual Content Creation Coach & Thinkific Expert for Online Course Creators, Xayli specializes in helping entrepreneurs effectively stand out and make a genuine impact in the digital space. Xayli has been a driving force behind past Think in Color events.

“We’re proud to pioneer an event where, year after year, underrepresented voices are able to come together, and to inspire and empower one another,” says Christie Horsman, VP of Marketing at Thinkific. “By shining a spotlight on the varied experiences of a host of talented and successful women and BIPOC entrepreneurs, the next generation of Creator Educators can model their success on powerful and relatable role models.”
