  • The Infosys Knowledge Institute: Show Her the Money with Catherine Gray and Rohini Williams

    March 29, 2024


  • Catherine Gray highlights the critical role of representation in venture capital and private equity, noting that people tend to invest in those they identify with. By increasing diversity in decision-making roles within these sectors, there's an opportunity to support underrepresented founders and funders, ultimately leading to more equitable distribution of capital and fostering innovation.
  • Rohini Williams emphasizes the transformative potential of AI in revolutionizing investment strategies and operational efficiency within private equity firms. AI-powered tools enable synthesizing vast amounts of data, providing valuable insights for investment decisions. Moreover, AI can enhance customer sentiment analysis and cost reduction efforts, driving growth and profitability in portfolio companies. Embracing AI presents an opportunity for private equity firms to stay competitive and generate greater returns while advancing diversity and inclusion initiatives.

About Catherine Gray

Catherine Gray

Catherine Gray is an award-winning producer who started her career in South Florida launching a show called Way Off Broadway. It aired on WBFS, and it was the first TV show to feature a drag queen as the host of a variety show.

Catherine then went on to produce the very first documentary film that explored over a thousand federal rights, benefits and protections that come with marriage - with regard to same-sex marriage, called, I Can't Marry You. The film was narrated by Ellen DeGeneres's mom, Betty, which aired on PBS in more than 60 cities nationwide. Catherine also co-produced several documentary films for the LOGO network. That led her to start her own production company called Showbiz Shorts aka Corp Shorts, and eventually 360 Karma Productions- before launching She Angel Investors.

She created the She Angels web series which followed the stories of women entrepreneurs who were looking for funding and receiving it. That web series led Catherine to her latest project, Show Her The Money, a documentary that has won several Best Feature Documentary Awards at various film festivals across the country. It made it on the "Academy Awards For Your Consideration" list, after having a theatrical release in Los Angeles and New York City. The film is now scheduled for a 50-city tour around the globe. Executive Producer Sharon Gless is featured in the film. Sharon is best known for her Emmy winning role in Cagney and Lacey and her roles on other shows such as Queer As Folk.
