I am so excited for you to hear this episode with the incredible Sophie Williams. I found out about Sophie via Instagram the week that George Floyd died where she shared a post that went viral and it was so powerful.
Sophie Williams (@officialmillennialblack) is a dedicated anti-racism advocate and activist. Outside of her online platform, she has spoken on panels for Reuters, Afrovisibility, WeAre Stripes and Girls Talk London, discussing Diversity and Inclusion in the workplace, and black representation in advertising, both on screen and in agencies. Professionally, Sophie has had a long career in advertising, particularly in social agencies, where she was most recently COO. In 2019 Sophie left traditional agencies to set up her own businesses, working directly with clients such as Netflix on marketing for shows like Sex Education, The Crown and The End of the Fucking World.
She has a book, Millennial Black that is coming out in April, 2021 that you’re able to preorder now and she is making such a signifiant impact through her work.
