ColorComm 2016 in Miami

I was honored to host two panel discussions on diversity in the digital age at ColorComm 2016 in Miami. The conference is all about empowering women of color to engage, excel and advance their careers. 


Here's a snippet of what I learned:


  1. "You don't get what you deserve, you get what you ask for." Lauren Maillian, Entrepreneur and Start-Up Advisor  
  2. "Don't take "No" for an answer" Michelle Giuda, SVP of Global Communications at Weber Shandwick
  3. "Be authentic in your networking" from Nicole Mayo, Account Director at Weber Shandwick for Mattel's Barbie, Hot Wheels and Fisher Price. 
  4. "Set no limits!" from Kristin Hooper, VP at KRC Research
  5. "If you don't have a seat at the table, you're on the menu." from Delvin Joyce, Managing Director at Prudential and former NFL player.
  6. "Companies that are more diverse see a significant benefit to their bottom lines." from Judith Harrison, SVP of Diversity & Inclusion at Weber Shandwick

    It's actually very complicated in this busy life to listen news on Television, thus I only use the web for that purpose, and obtain the most up-to-date news.

    I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is required to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very web savvy so I'm not 100% sure. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks

    Have you ever considered publishing an ebook or guest authoring on other sites? I have a blog centered on the same ideas you discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information. I know my audience would value your work. If you're even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an email.

    It's in fact very difficult in this busy life to listen news on Television, so I simply use web for that reason, and take the latest information.

    I have been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.
