In 2018, Ryann Richardson made history, becoming the 50th Anniversary Miss Black America. Before that, the tech executive-turned-founder and Diversity & Inclusion advocate spent 10 years building brands and culture for companies spanning early-stage startups (Victor) to billion-dollar "unicorns" (Uber) to the Fortune500 (T-Mobile).
Her work earned her a spot as the youngest honoree on Savoy Magazine’s list of Most Influential Black Executives in Corporate America, and set her on the path of discovering her unique purpose as a champion for underrepresented voices.
Now in her second act as a founder, Ryann is building her company, Ellington Lafayette Co., as a new type of tech incubator, focusing exclusively on startups that drive social equity for women and communities of color.
A TEDx and Keynote Speaker, Ryann travels the US giving talks on “Authenticity and Assimilation”, “Taking Up Space as Women and POC” and “The Politics of Race, Beauty, and Power”.
