Good episode? Give it some love!
It was such a pleasure to welcome Nadine King to Assistants Together this week. Nadine is Special Assistant to the Provost at Spelman University, Founder of Black Admin Magic and the newly launched the National Association of Black Administrative Professionals and also author of The Ninja: Chronicles of an Assistant. Nadine opened up on why she felt compelled to write her book and the circumstances that led her to launch both Black Admin Magic and NABAP.

Nadine and I speak about diversity and inclusion and the deep emotional impact of racism and unconscious bias. Our conversation is emotional and raw at times as Nadine speaks with utter honesty about her life experiences and it was humbling to hear her talk about the challenges she has overcome in her life. As Nadine says in the podcast, there isn’t a full stop when it comes to racism, we can’t finish that conversation, because frankly it isn’t over. We must keep it front of mind, become better allies and I encourage you to continue speaking about this topic with your friends and family.

The event that Nadine speaks about in the episode is the inaugural gathering of the National Association of Black Administrative Professionals, Inc.

This year's theme is: Black Admin Magic and Beyond. You will hear from some of the leading voices in the industry and will have access to BAM empowerment, training and more. Registration can be completed on their temporary page (www.nabap.org)
