Mimi Nartey

Race, Class, and Parenting (RCAP) Founder/CEO Family Playa Vista, California
About Mimi
I am a busy gal. I am an educator, scholar, author, speaker, philanthropist, and social entrepreneur. I am passionate about integrating science and philosophy to teach and promote social justice and women's empowerment. I am the Founder and CEO of RCAP (Race, Class, and Parenting), which is a marketplace of ideas for women who are thought-leaders and influencers to engage in dialogue on social dynamics and parenting in communities of affluence. The point is to support mothers who want to parent from a stronger social justice perspective.

Best advice you've ever been given

To realize that you do not need to have anxiety about failures or missed opportunities - nothing truly intended for you will pass you by!

Personal Passions, Charities, Hobbies:

I am very passionate about giving back. I am a FIFA World Cup Soccer veteran. This year, we launched The Nartey Sports Foundation to support sports-related interventions for underserved youth. I sit on the board of Swan Within, Inc., a nonprofit that uses ballet as an intervention for sex-trafficked, incarcerated juvenile girls. I also sit on the Board of Saint Bernard High School that is acclaimed for its single-gender STEM program. I am a very involved mommy, and I volunteer my time in leadership roles at my children's schools - and of course as a their soccer coach! Besides all of this, I LOVE fashion, and I have a column in a SELLEBRITY digital magazine called "Luxury Thesis." Through luxury brand partnerships, I blog my eccentric perspective on beautiful things. This is just pure joy for me!

What do you want to achieve in 2018, personally and professionally?

This year is off to an amazing start! My husband and I were just named a "2018 LA Power Couple" by Angeleno and LA Confidential Magazines. I am really humbled and motivated to knock it out of the park this year! I plan to grow my RCAP membership significantly and to increase revenue through the corporate sponsorship model that I implemented last year. I want to increase my company and personal social media following. I also have some significant fundraising goals to hit through our foundation.

Name one thing that scares the shit out of you:

Regret.

What is one thing that would be game-changing for your business right now?

I think I just need to pursue bigger platforms to increase visibility. I know from the feedback of my membership that they value the service that I am offering, and there aren't really any competitors. I have determined that I really need to focus on networking and collaborating to scale this up!

If you could tell your 20 year old self one thing, what would it be?

I would teach my 20 year old self about compassionate dignity: When people hurt you, it is not a reflection of who you are, it is a reflection of where they are and where they need to grow.

Why do you want to be a part of heymama?

I had the awesome opportunity to attend "Setting Money Goals & Making Dreams A Reality" with Heidi Stevens. I was really excited about the chance to interact with like-minded mothers, to learn, to share, and to explore synergies. I know that this community is the "tribe" I have been pining for!
