Queens Brunch is a cross-functional community for business women of color. Queens was started by Shayna Atkins, Founder of Atkco, Inc., as a bi-monthly event series to bring together women from different backgrounds connect, mastermind, and motivate. Shayna is a big believer that women thrive in tribes and knows that Queens will be a connector for women in business globally. Named after her mother, an entrepreneur, mama bear, and hustler from the West side of Chicago, Queenesta Harris, Queens is all about supporting women in the brands they build and the lives they change.
