“These are women who have spent their careers delivering news or otherwise facilitating the storytelling process. While many are household names, they often toil without receiving the full amount of recognition they deserve. These women have been “leaning in” well before the best-selling book generated today’s buzzword about women and leadership, ” states SFBJA President Terrence Shepherd.
Each woman was chosen for her distinguished career accomplishments and contributions to the South Florida media landscape. Suzette Maylor will moderate the panel.Be sure to tell them Soul Of Miami sent you!
