Ladies in the Industry Conference
Ladies in the Industry Networking Conference at the Sheraton in Silver Spring
No two women are created alike, and it's our differences that will allow us to create our version of success in our lives. That was my major take-away after attending the Ladies in the Industry Networking Conference curated by Serene MGMT and held at the Sheraton in Silver Spring.
Hosted and moderated by Deja Perez of 93.9 WKYS, the Networking Conference centered around women in the media, whether it be music, radio, television or any other type of media outlet and how to navigate these mostly male-dominated industries. Not only were we treated to 3 dynamic panels with renowned guest speakers, we also were given the VIP treatment including access to vendors, a delicious lunch and swag bags.
The Relationship Panel dropped several jewels on how to maintain a satisfying and lasting relationship while developing and sustaining an unconventional career in media. Raven Paris of DTLR Radio and Love The Culture Radio, DJ and radio personality for Lit Radio DJ Mim, and Lush of Lush Radio provided valuable advice and lively and hilarious discussion.
Something that we often overlook is how motherhood can affect the way one is able to thrive in the media industry. The Motherhood in Media panel provided numerous real-life stories that any working mother could relate to whether it was tips on work-life balance, how and when to expose our kids to our careers and how to do it all with grace and style. News coordinator for Fox 5 Michelline Bowman (), CEO of FSCo Agency Farrah Shanel, Kierra of Kmwexclusive.com and DTLR Radio, and WHIM Radio Personality, Blogger and Momager Lady J all shared their experiences in a relatable, genuine and motivational way.
Thank you Nia and Megan of Serene Management and Ladies in the Industry for the invitation. I could tell that I wasn't the only one that left with more information than I walked in with.
