Atlanta, GA – Vanessa Parker
Vanessa Parker is a project manager by day and serial entrepreneur after the 9-5 is done. She is the Director of Operations & Training for her family business Divas In Defense® and the founder of PinkBoss. PinkBoss is a resource for aspiring female entrepreneurs looking to launch their side hustle while still employed. It is her mission and purpose to equip women with the resources to use their passions and skills to generate an income that will allow them the flexibility to do what they love every day.
“Working with women of color is important because as a young woman, all of the women of color that I aspired to be like were so far away. They were either celebrities or public figures that I could not touch or reach. In this position, I feel that working with women of color is important because of how empowering the impact will be in our community.
It goes deeper than just working in an office, it is my goal to work across all platforms and pour into young women of color of future generations.”
“They are looking up to us and I strive to be a tangible inspiration to young girls like my daughters and her friends. Good role models are created one at a time and together I believe that we can win! There is no I in team and I strongly believe that joining forces with other women of color can create a strong army of unstoppable, powerful women.”
