Episode 10 - Sitting with Pioneering Tech Entrepreneur Avis Yates Rivers

Tune in to hear host Laura Mignott (Founder, experiential marketing agency Digital Flash) in conversation with Avis Yates Rivers, a real life ‘Hidden Figure’ and 30+ year entrepreneur. Starting out as a saleswoman for Exxon in the 80s – selling the first information processors and fax machines - Avis evolved into an entrepreneur over the next 32 years and never looked back. 
Her key advice: take the time to debate and decide whether to be an entrepreneur. They also cover her amazing initiative #SitWithMe and how to encourage careers in technology for women and people of color.
