From the inventor of Soccket, an energy-producing soccer ball, to the cofounder of CareSolver, a senior-care program, these women have already had huge successes in the business and tech realms.

"Empowered" will aim to educate American women about the disease and encourage the fight against it with partnerships and grants.

And, as Keys pointed out, "black women are disproportionally affected ... this is a must-have conversation."
