This week’s episode features Latoya Drake, Head of Media Representation at Google. Latoya landed in the world of media after pivoting from her path to law school and quickly finding herself immersed in the world of messaging, soundbites and ultimately becoming the voice and face for global corporations.   Inspired by the quote, “I am a voice in this world and I deserve to be heard” from 90s tv show “A Different World,” Latoya has built a career elevating underrepresented voices and creating a more inclusive and equitable media ecosystem.    Listen as we discuss how Latoya identified the need for her current role at Google amid the challenging social and media landscape of 2020, her take on higher education addressing DEI and the importance of a multicultural lens in the media industry as a former Adjunct Instructor at NYU, and why she advises Black women to chase the role not the company.
