As part of our Local Inclusion series, Local Profile will host our first ever Dynamic Women of Color event, sponsored by Toyota and Frisco Hall. Dynamic Women of Color will celebrate the no-longer-hidden figures across all industries and honor the trailbrazers who have changed the landscape for women in business. For years, women of color have been the driving force behind successful businesses. Dynamic Women of Color aims to celebrate, empower and unite DFW’s most brilliant leading ladies.
The keynote speech at Dynamic Women of Color will be delivered by Adrienne Trimble, President & CEO of National Minority Supplier Development Council.
Other speakers include:
- Joan Robinson-Berry, Vice President of Engineering, Modifications & Maintenance at Boeing Global Services
- Shawna Wilson, Vice-President of Sales & Marketing at PepsiCo
- Melody Lenox, Vice President of Operations at Axxess
- Rhonda Green, Managing Director/National Head of Business Development at JPMorgan Chase
During Dynamic Women of Color, attendees will learn how to foster an inclusive, welcoming work environment. They will also address issues in their place of work and discuss how they can cultivate a more conscious environment.
Every attendee of Dynamic Women of Color will have the opportunity to plug into local multiple groups and engage in conversation with diverse individuals. The goal for each conversation is to inspire each participant to leave the event ready to spark change in Collin County.
