ENTREPRENEUR LAUNCHES STAFFING FIRM FOR BLACK ATTORNEYS, LAW STUDENTS AND LEGAL PROFESSIONALS


Rana Coleman, Founder & CEO of RSColeman & Associates, LLC, is staying true to her goal of opening doors for African Americans and other ethnic minorities in the legal industry with the launch of the company’s new staffing division.  My initial thought process when I first started this company was to open the door for African Americans with getting into legal positions whether it’s being an attorney, being a legal secretary, a paralegal, a legal assistant, or someone coming fresh out of law school or out of undergrad.

I want to open the door so that we’re more represented because unfortunately, in my experience from the different positions that I’ve held, I don’t see us there. It’s not like we don’t have the credentials, the knowledge, and the passion for the field, we do, but we’re not being represented,” states Coleman, who is originally from Flint, Michigan.

FORMER UNDOCUMENTED TEEN WHO BUILT OVER $1M IN RETIREMENT BEFORE 50 NOW TEACHES OTHERS HOW TO BUILD WEALTH


Tanya Taylor is the Founder & CEO of Grow Your Wealth, a financial education platform that teaches professionals how to ditch bad debt and create a 6 or 7-figure retirement income even if they don’t have any plans in place.

Tanya is a Certified Public Accountant and holds an MBA in Strategic Management. She has spent most of her 23+ year career on Wall Street, working for or with some of the largest international banks and insurance companies in the world. She has been able to grow her retirement portfolio to over $1 million by age 48 while traveling to over 50 countries.

Tanya is no stranger to financial hardships. At 16, she graduated high school without any prospects of a job or higher education. After graduation, she boarded a flight to America, leaving her entire family in Jamaica in the hopes of escaping poverty.

Seeing people living paycheck to paycheck was a sharp contrast to what she had heard about America, but she was undaunted and continued to push towards her goals of building wealth and helping others do the same.

This led Jacqueline, an ordained minister, to tell her story and inspire others to embark on a healthier way of life. Jacqueline began holding health and wellness conferences and symposiums that were attended by countless women looking for direction and a path forward to improve their mental, emotional, and physical well-being.

As the founder of At the Well Conferences, Inc., for over 13 years, Jacqueline has created special conferences and leadership academies for women and girls of color that have changed their lives. For over eleven years, one of her early prolific endeavors was the prominent At the Well Young Women’s Leadership Academy, a powerful summer enrichment program for exceptional black teen girls at the prestigious Princeton University.

The academy created a special place for girls and women that gave them tools to help improve their lives. To create a safe space during the pandemic, the Leadership Academy went virtual to ensure access for more young women and girls when they needed it most. After 34 years of service with New York State Supreme Court, Jacqueline continued her passion for health and wellness, ensuring that women had the critical support needed to live full lives.

BLACK AUTHOR AND CIVIL ENGINEER PENS BOOK TO ENCOURAGE GIRLS OF COLOR TO EXPLORE MALE-DOMINATED FIELDS


 When civil engineer Jamila H. Lindo was pursuing her degree, she noticed that she was often the only female or Black female in her classes. And when tutoring youth students, they were often confused or surprised why she chose the field of study that she did. Realizing that this was a lack of exposure and understanding when it came to engineering and other male-dominated fields, Lindo turned to writing her newly released children’s book, Girls Can Be Engineers, as a tool to inspire girls, especially those of color.

In Lindo’s beautifully illustrated book, a young girl named Hannah is very excited for Career Day at her school and to choose a career that’s right for her. But each time she thinks she’s picked one that’s perfect, she’s told that she can’t do something that’s meant only for boys.
