This episode I interview Vanessa Maddox, CEO, of The Girlfriend Group, a networking organization geared towards empowerment of women both online and in the real world. Vanessa has also created a spin-off collective called Get A Girlfriend Hired, using the networking power of The Girlfriend Group. I have had the pleasure of knowing Vanessa for many years, starting with our college years at Clark College/Clark Atlanta University. She is an Afrofuturist who is committed to female empowerment, social justice, and socioeconomic and political enfranchisement for people of all races, ethnicities, religions, genders, social classes, physical abilities, and sexual orientation. Our discussion will center on gender equity, opportunity, and empowerment through networking and technological advances.
