I'm here for positive change. Also, actively anti-racist.
Women in Film and Media Colorado
I'm Vice President for Women in Film and Media Colorado, a non-profit organization committed to uniting, educating, and empowering women filmmakers and their community by providing resources, networking and educational programs, and by actively pursuing equitable treatment and opportunities for women. We are in the process of updating that website!
The 3% Movement
I've been the Executive Producer for The 3% Movement since 2013, which is focused on changing the ratio of diversity in creative leadership in advertising and other industries. The more diverse the people who are creating the ideas, the better the ideas will be. Since its inception, the number of female creative directors has risen to 29%. Check out the Annual Conference, Super Bowl Tweet Up and other events.
Greater Together - AIGA
At Greater Together, an AIGA partnership to promote racial and economic equity in the creative industries, our mission is to inspire the creative community to use their talents to design a more diverse future. We have implemented and run two programs: the Spectrum Lecture Series, bringing creatives of color to Milwaukee to work with our community and our youth; and Creative Corps, a high school internship program within local advertising agencies.
Speaking & Consulting
I always have something to say on creativity, culture, and inclusion. And, I'm available to help small to mid-size agencies or production companies evaluate their creative, culture, and operations to run more efficiently and better suit the market.
I love to help people with their career journeys, so I've mentored several people in the local communities of Milwaukee, Denver, and Boulder, including through United Adworkers, Milwaukee's ad club.
