Tweetable Quotes:


“Having a queer lens – being a queer person, a trans person – and being in business is really flipping the script. It’s really saying, ‘Hey, we get to do this too.’” (02:23) (Dr. Pavini)

“When you’re a capitalist, you’re making money off of other people and off of the oppression of other people. Whereas entrepreneurs are making money with people.” (03:46) (Dr. Pavini)

“Running a start-up is a whole other animal…How am I gonna do this ethically? How am I gonna not step away from what’s core and important to me? And, to do this in a way that is queer, that is trans, that is really connected to my communities and to my identities and also providing a path forward.” (10:30) (Dr. Pavini)

“Stepping into public, visible leadership is kind of painting a target on your back in a certain way; and you have to build up your resilience.” (17:22) (Dr. Pavini)
