Hello Friends! I hope you’re hanging in there! 2020 has been quite the year, to say the least! From pandemics to hurricanes and everything in between, there’s always something new on the horizon. With the unexpected down time in the event industry and beyond, major brands and corporations have had an opportunity to (re)consider the importance of diversity and inclusion.
There is an amazing talent present amongst the Black and Brown event professionals, however, we often get overlooked when it comes to features, magazine covers, etc. I am happy to see that companies like Modern Luxury are making a stance to make a change!
Modern Luxury Weddings Atlanta recently launched their Fall/Winter 2020 issue. They invited Eliana Baucicault, event planner extraordinaire and the creator of The B Collective magazine, to be featured as the guest editor! She had a lot to say about the importance of representation in the wedding and event industry. In addition, she was given the opportunity to create The B List. “These brilliant Black vendors are the best, boldest, and brightest in the industry.” Amongst those listed, she included Ebony Peoples Events & Design! It’s truly an honor to be included with fellow industry peers that I adore and admire! Here’s a peek:

Eliana, thank you for all that you continue to do for our industry! Modern Luxury, thank you for continuing the conversation! I’m excited to see where our industry is headed!
