Panel Discussion: Businesses Busting Social Taboos



Periods. Sex. Try to start a conversation about either of these topics and you are likely to be met with reactions of discomfort, because for decades these topics have been kept hush-hush. So how can companies innovate within industries built on taboo? This panel brings together entrepreneurs who are improving tampons and condoms to meet marketplace needs while also empowering women to take control of the national conversations about them and their bodies.

Join the entrepreneurs behind Conscious Period and Lovability Condoms for a conversation about using business to break down social taboos in consumer industries, moderated by Safiya Nygaard of BuzzFeed Ladylike.


5:00 – 5:40 PM – Panel Discussion, followed by Q&A
5:40 – 6:00 PM – Light Refreshments and Mingling
