Yes Ma’am Event Recap

On April 25th, 2015, along with Project Cobalt & Verizon, we hosted Yes Ma’am, a one day women’s career symposium, at Herman Miller in LA. It was time to have an event focused on empowering women to continue to strive for their career goals. Everyone in attendance was encouraged to believe in themselves and have the confidence to get what they deserve. Moderated by Chris Denson of Innovation Crush, it was a truly inspiring day but how could it not be with the panel line-up:

Entrepreneurship with Chelsea Matthews (Matte Black), Tracy Nguyen Romulus (Industry Public Relations / rhyla) & Melody Ehsani (M.E.).


Climbing the Corporate Ladder with Talitha Watkins (Universal Pictures), Alero Akuya (Nike Women) & Courtni Asbury (Def Jam)


Trailblazing with Phoebe Lovatt (The WW Club), Linda Nguyen (Love+Made) & Kristen Fraser (Beats by Dre)


Verve provided the extra boost of caffeine everyone to start and get through the day.


Verizon handed out some useful career tools for everyone.
