Hello and welcome back to Equitya podcast about the business of startups, where we uncover the numbers and nuance behind the headlines.

This is our Wednesday show where we focus on a single topic, think about a question and unpack the rest. This week, Natasha asked: What happens if a black founder was impeached? Alex was back on the mic after a week away, and we brought in Dominic-Madori Davis (follow her on Twitter and Instagram) to talk us through the topic. After all, the key question was inspired by her latest TC+ column.

This is what we started with:

  • Rising tensions at Black Girls Code, which began last December with Bryant’s “indefinite suspension.”
  • Bryant’s eventual impeachment, which took place earlier this month, and the outpouring of public support for the leader. That conversation brought us into the reality of who is allowed to speak in public, and who is only allowed to speak off the record and without citing the source.
  • Davis piece on the symbolism of a black founder being removed from a leadership position
  • Inherent biases and how to navigate through them in the stories we hear and tips we get.
