Join and co-create your community of under represented changemakers
Shout out to entrepreneurs from under represented groups, committed to positive social impact.
What is Roar of the Zebra all about?
ROTZ is a new initiative, a collaborative community with a simple aim.
To support and empower underrepresented groups to become the next generation of social impact entrepreneur.
But it is not a level playing field and under represented groups face additional challenges.
We want to address the imbalance.
The community will be digital and global, facilitating participation and the sharing of resources. We will share tools, information & articles, talks & webinars, a podcast and much more, with the focus of supporting under-represented groups to beat the odds when it comes to growing your impact business.
Why join ROTZ?
This is what our early joiners tell us:
Thought leaders in The space say……
“In the groups’ formative stages, it became clear very quickly, that this collaborative community had the power to not only transcend national boundaries but also attract a truly diverse and committed membership. Regardless of background, social status, or ethnicity, the passion, and common purpose shared by our early adopters clearly demonstrates why the group is so needed.”
Rae Legallienne, Head of Business Development, at Zebra Growth and Founding Partner of Roar of the Zebra
“I resonate with the Zebra Group agenda to provide a collaborative support network and community to empower under-represented groups, giving access to information, insights, resources, collaboration and open dialogue. I feel this is a great initiative, much needed to capacitate businesses for sustainable positive impact. It is a noble initiative that needs all of us to be hands on deck.”
Audrey Simbiso Chidawanyika, Founder and CEO Simbiso Jumpstart Initiative, Zimbabwe and Founding Partner of Roar of the Zebra.
“My hope for this group is that it will become a catalyst to change the way we work so that under represented groups are no longer left behind. We need to create a new agenda to ensure that balancing profit and growth becomes simply ‘business as usual’, and that we can empower all to achieve positive social impacts regardless of social status, ethnicity, race or gender”
Danielle Thompson, Founder of Unthread Advisory and Founding Partner of Roar of the Zebra.
