Take The Lead Presents: Virtual Happy Hour series, seeks to change the narrative from problems to solutions through thought leadership.

Be Your Own CEO: Exploring Next Gen Leadership

This month, we continue our Virtual Happy Hour series with Jamia Wilson, Executive Director of Women, Action & the Media (WAM!) as we explore how you can become the CEO of your life using next generation leadership tools to ignite change in your personal and professional life.

This happy hour will be moderated by Gloria Feldt, President & Co-Founder of Take The Lead.

During this Virtual Happy Hour we’ll review:

  • How to build your professional portfolio
  • Tips for growing your personal and professional networks
  • Best practices for defining yourself and creating a successful public platform


Jamia Wilson


Jamia Wilson is many things: An activist. A feminist. A storyteller. A mediamaker. But more than anything, she is a natural-born thought leader. As Executive Director of Women, Action, & the Media, the former YTH Executive Director, TED Prize Storyteller, and former Vice President of Programs at The Women’s Media Center, Jamia has been a powerful force in the social justice movement for nearly a decade. As a leading voice on feminist and women’s rights issues, her work and words have appeared in and on several outlets such as New York Magazine, The Today Show, and The Washington Post. She’s also a staff writer for Rookie and has contributed to several books such as Madonna and Me: Women Writers on the Queen of Pop, and I Still Believe Anita Hill. But what we’re most excited about is her own book that she’s currently writing about Beyonce and feminism. (Yes, really.) It’s no surprise she was named in Refinery29’s “17 Faces of the Future of Feminism.

It may be true that Jamia has spoken alongside feminist greats like Gloria Steinem and Jane Fonda, but we think they’re also lucky to have been alongside her. A true next generation leader, she has graced the stage at events such as TEDxYouth@Hewitt, Netroots Nation, and Facing Race, and travels across the U.S. and beyond to college campuses to talk about race, feminism, spirituality, leadership, and so much more.
