Event Management is one of the skills that I have honed and mastered through the years. I was able to lead successful events and parties with several companies. Here are some of the most recents events that I helped implement:
#GIRLBOSS Book Launch
Nasty or Nice
Pink Pump Affair
A PINK PUMP AFFAIR was designed to bring together powerful women from different backgrounds and to garner their support for more autism research and resources. Despite difficult economic times, the event was an overwhelming success. Sponsored by Broadway Federal Bank, Time Warner Cable and Martin & Martin, LLP, the event provided women an opportunity for networking and bonding, while raising money for children with autism in poor communities.
Special Needs also honored the tremendous service and accomplishments of five women including actress Holly Robinson Peete; Janice Bryant Howroyd, the president and CEO of one of the largest temporary staffing agencies in the country; Dr. Ruth Creary, president and CEO of Visiting Angels, LLC and former executive director of South Central Los Angeles Regional Center; and Carliss McGhee, author and founder of Khocolate Keepsakes, a literacy program for underserved children. Lifetime achievement award recipient, Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-34).
Tools for Transformation
The Tools for Transformation Conference brings together top experts from around the nation to provide information and workshops on topics ranging from advocacy to employment opportunities for parents of disabled children. This one of a kind conference was free and open to the public. More than 800 ascended on the beautiful Junior Blind of America for a full day of information and networking. Greeted by U.S. Congresswomen Laura Richardson and Diane Watson, State Senator Elect Curren Price, Sup. Mark Ridley Thomas and many more of the nation's most powerful elected officials and community leaders, participants had an opportunity to participate in 10 workshops, attend an award luncheon a massive resource fair where participants met service providers, authors, doctors, therapists, advocates and other professionals who work in the disability community.
