The South Florida Black Journalists Association (SFBJA) and FIU’s chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ)  will honor seven key women who have influenced  the media and communications. “Women in Media,’’ a roundtable, will be held on Saturday, March 29, 2014, at 3 p.m. at the FIU Biscayne Bay Campus, 3000 NE 151 Street, North Miami, FL 33181 in the  Bayview Ballroom (Wolf University Center, Room 221). The honorees, who will share how they have navigated through the industry, include :

  • Trina Robinson, NBC6 Investigative Anchor;
  • Carolyn Guniss, managing editor for the South Florida Times;
  • Suzan McDowell, owner, president, and CEO of  Circle of One Marketing;
  • Yvette N. Harris, founder and lifestyle strategist for Harris Public Relations;
  • Traci Cloyd, on air personality for WHQT-FM Hot105;
  • Julia Yarbough,  author, media relations specialist for Julia Yarbough Media Group; and
  • Trenae Floyd, public affairs coordinator for Miami-Dade Commissioner Barbara J. Jordan.

“These are women who have spent their careers delivering news or otherwise facilitating the storytelling process. While many are household names, they often toil without receiving the full amount of recognition they deserve. These women have been “leaning in” well before the best-selling book generated today’s buzzword about women and leadership, ” states SFBJA President Terrence Shepherd.

Each  woman was chosen for her distinguished career accomplishments and contributions to the South Florida media landscape. Suzette Maylor will moderate the panel.
