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 (https://www.serenemgmt.com/) and held at the Sheraton in Silver Spring.
Hosted and moderated by Deja Perez of 93.9 WKYS (http://dejaperez.com/), 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.
On the Sexism and Power panel we had PR powerhouse Candice Nicole (www.candicenicolepr.com), Ashleigh Demi of TV ONE and WPGC 95.5 (http://instagram.com/

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.
