Founded by Emily Mills in 2010, How She Hustles is one of Canada’s leading social networks for diverse professional women – from entrepreneurs who are making their mark in the start-up ecosystem, to corporate professionals who are changing the leadership landscape.
Over the last decade, How She Hustles has hosted sold-out networking events in Toronto, grown a vibrant social media community with a digital reach of 18K diverse women and has produced buzz-worthy digital content. Most recently, How She Hustles produced the 2nd annual Startup & Slay digital series launched during the COVID-19 pandemic featuring Canada’s diverse women and non-binary entrepreneurs with sponsors CIBC, Rogers Sports & Media and Shopify. How She Hustles also created the award-winning HERstory in Black multimedia project with CBC in 2017.
Emily has been recognized by WXN Canada’s Top 100 Most Powerful Women, 100 Accomplished Black Canadian Women and Ryerson University’s Alumni Achievement Awards. She brought women from How She Hustles to meet former U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama and hosted a roundtable with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
