As you may know, we've got a Town Hall discussion scheduled for Day 1 of Blogalicious that promises to be a very intriguing and informative session. "Marketing to Women of Color: The Real Deal" will be a discussion between a group of marketers and a group of women of color bloggers with audience participation that we hope will help uncover some of the roadblocks between the two groups and hopefully lead to an action plan to help further integrate women of color in the blogosphere.
Today's spotlight is one of the marketers on that panel - Melanie Babcock, Senior Vice President for Digital Strategy and Services with MS&L. Here's a little more about Melanie:
"Melanie is an interactive specialist with 13 years of interactive/web consulting expertise. She is responsible for helping clients develop and deliver innovative, high-impact digital communications solutions to meet their business and communications objectives.
