Black Women in Entertainment: The Necessary Voice


Tiana Lewis


Sylvia Obell


Tiana Lewis along with two additional powerful, bad-ass, Black women will discuss what is like to navigate the entertainment industry (music, tech, and media) in a predominantly white-male space. We will unpack the disproportionate amount of representation in the workplace vs the massive success black culture brings to the industry, to how we’ve navigated tough spaces and what it’s like to drive culture forward in our seats.
