Janet Mock – Sept 28th at 5:00pm
To benefit the Western North Carolina Diversity Engagement Coalition
Janet Mock is the New York Times bestselling author of Redefining Realness and the host of So POPular! — a weekly MSNBC digital series about culture. She is a sought-after speaker and the founder of #GirlsLikeUs, a social media project that empowers trans women. Janet’s story of growing up trans caught the nation’s attention in a 2011 Marie Claire. Since then she’s become one of the most influential trans women and millennial leaders in media. TIME called her one of “12 new faces of black leadership” and one of “the most influential people on the Internet” while Fast Company named her one of 2015’s “most creative people in business.” Now, Janet finds herself on the other side of the story as a Contributing Editor for Marie Claire, a host for MSNBC, & correspondent for Entertainment Tonight.
