Dee Poku Empowers Women With Her Hollywood Networking Platform
From Black Enterprise
Wife and mother Dee Poku has been able to leverage her more than 10 years of building Hollywood relationships from her days as a studio exec to make her dream of a women’s network reality. The co-founder and CEO of the WIE Network leads an empowerment conference and community, seeking to inspire and motivate women leaders of today and tomorrow, and mixing her networking, branding and marketing mojo to create a global movement.
The WIE Symposium has drawn a lineup of amazing power women including Nancy Pelosi, Donna Karan, Melinda Gates, Iman, and Rosario Dawson, and this year’s roster is slated to be just as phenomenal, with Tyra Banks, Katie Couric and Brooke Shields among key speakers.
Poku, a native of Accra, Ghana and London, is also the founder of Right Angle, a branding and marketing consultancy that boasts a client list of top brands including Coca Cola, Absolut Vodka, Stella Artois and London Fashion Week.
On the heels of this year’s New York City event, BlackEnterprise.com caught up with Poku to talk about her global career journey, how math set the foundation for success in fashion and entertainment and her advice for women seeking professional empowerment of their own.
