On July 26, 2017, Business Babes and the City of Philadelphia recognized and honored Philadelphia women who have an impact in the world of media.
Pynk Magazine’s Senior Editor, Tweety Elitou, was among the list of prestigious women that included: Annette John-Hall (WHYY Reporter), Berlinda Garnett (EMMY award winner producer for Fox29), Elizabeth Wellington (Fashion Columnist for the Philadelphia Inquirer), Rahel Solomon (co-Anchor on CBS3 Eyewitness News in the Morning), Hanniyah Sharpe-Brown (Communications Manager for Councilwoman Blondell Reynolds-Brown), Karen Vaughn (Midday Talent on WRNB FM and Operations Manager at Radio One), and Deirdre Childress-Hopkins (Strategic Communications Manager at the Pennsylvania Convention Center).

My experience at the event was enlightening and there are a few key points that I take from the event that will always open the door to success.
There is a sisterhood in media. When women work together, there is nothing that can’t be accomplished. In the room of women, each woman had the ability to support another, and another, and another. This link can be strong and carry the weight of the next generation of media talents.
Networking is powerful. I spoke with a few women that showed interest in my work as a writer and aspiring chef. I also found their work interesting. The final result was that we exchanged social media connects and looked forward to seeing how we could help each other. Powerful.
There is power in numbers. When women come together to support, congratulate, and celebrate each others accomplishments, magical things can happen.
