Angelica Rosas McDaniel is an Emmy award-winning TV executive & mentorship advocate who connects with ambitious women & organizations looking to engage talented diverse voices.


There are more male leaders named John in America than there are women in leadership roles.

Women make 53 to 79 cents on the dollar of what men earn. Only 8% of Fortune 500 CEOs are women. Less than 3% of venture capital goes to female-owned businesses.  And, of course, there's that stat about John.

Organizations are making diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) a top priority, but at this rate we still won’t reach gender equity in the workplace until 2227. And it’s not just a question of hiring more diverse employees -- corporations need to nurture, retain and promote them.

Angelica is an Emmy-winning Latina media executive, founder of Raise Women, and former Head of Daytime at CBS the #1 rated TV network. The daughter of a Mexican immigrant who grew up in Minnesota without connections, clout or cash and relied on an unyielding work ethic to get a seat at the table in Hollywood.

She's navigated lack of representation and unconscious bias in the workplace and knows what it’s like to be the only woman and only person of color in the room.  Her experiences overcoming adversity led her to raise it forward as a mentorship and equity advocate with the insight to inspire a crowd from colleges to women's groups to C-Level Suites.
