Who is Minda?

Founder, Speaker, Author, Seat Creator.

Hello! I’m Minda

I’m a California girl, who grew up in Chicago and today calls New York City home.

In addition to my passion for helping women of color secure their seat at the table, I’m also a lover of grits and rap lyrics.

I am, among many other things:

  • The founder of The Memo LLC, a career development company for women of color.
  • An Adjunct Professor of Public Service at NYU’s Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service.
  • A speaker who has conducted workshops and keynotes at corporations like Bloomberg, Google, Time Inc., SXSW, The Campaign For Black Male Achievement, and The New York Public Library. And universities and colleges like Western Illinois University, NYU Stern, North Carolina A&T, and Cornell.
  • A podcaster who invites you to join my weekly conversation with amazing featured guests and a growing community of professional women of color on #SecureTheSeat.

In addition to the above, I also recently added author to my titles. My debut book, The Memo, is set for an August 20, 2019 release date with The Hachette Book Group-Seal Press. Please secure your copy today!

I’m blessed to have been featured in Forbes, CNBC, The Guardian, The Washington Post, and Fast Company.

I hold a Bachelor’s in Communications and a Master’s in Business Administration.
