Stephynie is speaking with Ginnette Harvey, who is the founder and CEO of Harper and Gray, a talent solutions company that leads with Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. Ginnette grew up in the UK without much money or resources. Still, she didn't let that deter her on her road to success. Her confidence and leadership skills made her stand out at the age of 23. After 15 years with the same company, Ginnette left to start her own business with a focus on helping other companies diversify their workplace.

The Entrepreneurship journey is hard enough yet Ginnette was doing this pregnant with her second child. I'm so excited to have Ginnette on the show today to talk about how she learned to share her authentic story of where she came from. She talks about the challenges she faced as an Entrepreneur with a baby on the way and how great leadership can take a company to the next level!
