Transforming DEI Through Vision and Technology
Mandy Price is the CEO of Kanarys, the first Black- and female-founded diversity, equity and inclusion technology platform for the workplace and the largest DEI data-driven platform of its kind in the United States. Mandy left her legal career to co-found Kanarys and previously served as a Private Equity associate in Weil’s Dallas office. She and her co-founder, Star Carter, who is also a Weil alum, were named two of Entrepreneur magazine’s Top 100 Most Powerful Women of 2020, and Kanarys was named winner of the Dallas Innovates and D CEO Innovation Award for Talent and Diversity in 2021. We are proud to note that Mandy and Kanarys have been garnering attention in numerous major media outlets, including Forbes, Bloomberg, CNN, and CNBC.
In this edition of the Weil Alumni Interview Series, Paul Genender, a partner in Weil’s Dallas office, the leader of Weil’s Litigation practice in Texas and a member of our Diversity Committee, speaks with Mandy about her passion for DEI issues, the “equity” component in DEI, the proven benefits for companies that implement forward-looking DEI practices, and how her Weil training helps her as an entrepreneur.
