As we all know, February is Black History Month. It’s a month where we honor those who have made an impact on American culture for equal rights, those who have invented, those who have a helped others and those who have inspired everyone to be the best they can be, not only as a person of color but as a human.
As someone in the technology/web/social space, I often travel and attend various events in the industry and notice a huge lack of diversity, and when it comes to getting attention from mainstream media/tech blogs it’s almost impossible. That’s why I’m starting 28 Days of Diversity on SocialWayne.com. The goal of 28 Days of Diversity is to feature someone new everyday for the month of February for just being awesome in their own right. The list will include some of leaders in the social web space, startups, bloggers, conference organizers, IT professionals and friends not ranked in any particular order. Each post will include a picture, bio, two links from the selected person and this paragraph. So for the next 28 days, come back to visit SocialWayne.com to see who’s on the list. For day 15, I would like to introduce to some and present to others: Ilina Ewen
Ilina Ewen is a seasoned marketing and branding consultant. Seasoned, of course, is just another way of saying she wore neon leg warmers before they became a fashion “don’t” the second time around. For the last six years she has run her own marketing consulting firm, iFactor. Ilina acts as the voice of the consumer to ensure her clients’ positioning, messaging, and implemention resonate with their target audiences. She is a blogger and active social media butterfly. When she’s not working, tweeting, or writing, you can find her wrangling her two sons, building LEGO masterpieces, or whipping up something healthy and delicious. Ilina blogs at Dirt & Noise, WRAL moms, Foodie Mama, Deep South Moms, and Triangle Mamas.
Come back tomorrow to see who’s next on the list.
