Straight Talk from Black Entrepreneurs

Join us on November 12 for CEO and co-founder Mandy Price of Kanarys, Inc., and Kevin Curry, CEO and founder of Fit Men Cook. As McCombs Business Honors Program graduates and successful entrepreneurs, they will share personal perspective on their paths, their challenges and their outlooks for the future.

Many of the lessons they learned were over their lifelong friendship — from grade school, junior high, and high school in Dallas to business school at McCombs and graduate school at Harvard. You’ll hear about their successful and career limiting experiences in corporate America, what led both Mandy and Kevin to the tipping point to decide to leave and start their own businesses — to find their own way and space. And how they maintained a close working relationship as mentors to each other, and to other minorities facing the same challenges.

During his career at Dell, Kevin was a social media strategist working alongside C-level executives. As a hobby, he started a blog on Instagram, Fit Men Cook, to help improve his health and manage his weight. From this early 2013 beginning, Kevin now has over two million followers, product endorsements, guest media appearances, and new lines of related business.

In 2018, Mandy left her high-profile career as a corporate attorney to co-found Kanarys, Inc., a technology platform that helps provide data and metrics to diagnose, prioritize and optimize diversity, equity inclusion in the workplace. Kanarys is a leader in using company-specific data and analytics allowing organizations to make informed strategic DEI decisions. As a result, employees become more engaged, more productive, and ultimately, are motivated to stay at their organization.

Machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms promise many benefits such as overcoming human limitations and biases in decision-making and productivity. However, deployment of machine learning algorithms has shown that these algorithms may amplify existing biases in society, create new biases, increase privacy and cybersecurity risks, and pose novel ethical dilemmas.

The conference will explore how society and organizations can maximize the benefits and minimize the risks of these algorithms.
