A Conversation with Mellody Hobson

Cinnamongirl, Inc. celebrated her 10th Year of Excellence with an autumn afternoon of fundraising and a meaningful conversation about courage and passion. Over 270 of the Bay Area’s leaders and entrepreneurs gathered to support and learn more about our honorees and keynote speaker, Mellody Hobson.

Linda Robertson, a CGI supporter said,
“Truly an incredible afternoon.”

Christyl Wilson, Cinnamongirl Program Manager said,
“I loved when Mellody said ‘When I walk into a room, I don’t even have to say my last name. I’m like Beyoncé or Cher.” She declared her influence and owned it, without sounding cocky or full of herself. Mellody exudes confidence and isn’t afraid to shine. She rocks!”

Renata Gray, supporter and attendee wrote on her FB page,
“What a wonderful event! Congratulations on your 10th anniversary. I so enjoyed the panel discussion with Mellody Hobson…I enjoyed the words of expression the girls shared. I applaud you and your members for your vision… your work.

Gala Attendee said,
“It was an honor to be among courageous girls and women (and men too) who are truly beautiful inside and out. Coming together for purposes such as Cinnamongirl is what changing things for the better is all about.”

Climbing the Ladder Speaker Series

“Climbing the Ladder” is a series of community events that enable us to reach a broader group of girls (and boys), parents, mentors, and community leaders who are unable to commit to our 9-month program. Our events allow us to bring much needed information to the greater community. Importantly, this series also serves as a vehicle to allow our young women a platform to practice their leadership skills in organizing, moderating, and voicing their opinions within a community forum that is both enriching and thought-provoking.
