 Directions

Join us for a conversation with entrepreneur and executive Natalie Cofield.  Natalie will share how she is changing business for multicultural women, the importance of allyship and community, and the inspiring work of Walker's Legacy.

The name for Walker's Legacy came about because Natalie was inspired by Madam C.J. Walker's entrepreneurship, community engagement and innovation, and through her organization she is able to honor Madam Walker's legacy.  Madam Walker's story of rising from poverty to build a beauty empire and become the first female self-made millionaire has been captured in Self-Made:  Inspired by the Life of Madam C.J. Walker.
