Dear NAMIC Supporter:

This month we celebrate Women's History. Yesterday's tribute to International Women's Day was emphasized by the "Fearless Girl" statue installed by an asset management company in front of Manhattan's iconic charging bull. The statue highlighted the lack of gender diversity and equality in the workplace. Please enjoy today's issue dedicated to celebrating women. 
 


As we honor fearless women in the workplace, NAMIC continues to deliver its mission to educate, advocate and empower for multi-ethnic diversity in the media and communications industry via leadership and professional development programs and initiatives:
