After retiring from tennis, Serena Williams has pursued various endeavors, including involvement in social movements. She is a strong advocate for women’s empowerment and strives to bring about positive societal change. Through sharing information from diverse sources, she uplifts women and recently addressed a myth circulating during the COVID-19 pandemic, revealing the truth.
In addition to providing information, Williams also supports multiple businesses run by women through her venture capital firm, Serena Ventures. One of the companies they have invested in recently achieved a significant accomplishment and enhanced their operational capabilities.
Serena Williams dispels the myth surrounding women in the workforce.
The Queen of the Court does not keep her knowledge and wealth to herself. Williams is passionate about sharing it to support the growth and success of other women. One way in which Williams seeks to empower women is by providing accurate information. Following the COVID-19 pandemic, there was a false belief that women were becoming less driven in their careers. However, Williams, along with former COO of Meta, Sheryl Sandberg, shared the Women in the Workplace 2023 report, which disproves this belief.
The athlete who has won 23 grand slam titles posted a photo on her Instagram story.She also added a caption where she briefed about the post, saying, “
@leaninorg and @mckinseyco have recently released the 9th installment of #womenintheworkplace2023. The report challenges four harmful misconceptions about women and their role in the workforce, beginning with the first myth that women are losing their drive for success. In fact, women remain just as determined as before, and the option of flexible work arrangements has enabled them to pursue their ambitions. @sherylsandberg.”

Meka is someone who has added her voice to the ever-growing movement of women’s empowerment. But talking about the situation is not all she does to bring about a change.
“We invest in businesses with a female leader to promote gender equality and empowerment.”
In 2014, it was discovered that only 2% of venture capital funding went to women in America. In response, the founder created ‘Serena Ventures’ to support women and her firm has invested in 54% of female-led companies. In October 2022, Serena Ventures raised funds for ‘Boss Beauties’ with the goal of promoting women in the Web3 industry.
Boss Beauties has grown immensely since they received funding from Williams’ venture capital fund. They also acquired ‘Best Friend Finance’, which aims to raise awareness of the fundamentals of finances. With this move, Williams has actively participated in ensuring that women who might not be aware of certain technologies are not left behind. Her ventures continue to uplift women, and she will continue to do it till she can.
