Do Not Miss This Show: Torin and Julie welcome Wil Shelton, Author of The Silent Agreement and CEO of Wil Power Integrated Marketing in a knock down interview on the every day fight between Black professionals and the White power structure in our organizations.

Wil wrote The Silent Agreement as a call to action to corporations across America regarding their sincerity in sharing solidarity with the Black community. Many corporations were actively stating their support of the Black community following the police shootings and civil unrest of 2020. Corporations need to proactively enable and promote senior Black leadership in all facets of corporate achievement.

Wil is a consummate professional, passionate, ambitious, and empathetic leader. He is the founder, president, and CEO of Wil Power Integrated Marketing, a global multicultural marketing agency specializing in the beauty and grooming industries. He coaches companies challenged with diversity and inclusion and bolsters them toward corporate transparency. Wil, his wife, and their children reside in the Los Angeles area.
