Heather Whaling isn’t just the founder of Geben Communication, she is a well-known advocate for paid parental leave and has numerous accolades to back up an incredible and empowering resume.
Christine Perkett - @missusP
Listing all of Christine’s accomplishments would take days, so here’s a quick rundown - she has founded TWO companies, she’s an awesome working mom and she’s followed by Barack Obama and Ellen Degeneres on Twitter.
Dreena Whitfield - @DreenaWhitfield
It’s one thing to have your clients featured in Ebony, it’s another to be featured in it yourself as one of a strong group of “Black Women to Know in PR, Tech & Digital Media.” Such is the life of BA mom/former Press Secretary to Cory Booker/entrepreneur Dreena Whitfield.
