Minnesota chapter of National Association of Minorities in Communications (NAMIC) encouraged its members to be intentional and feel comfortable about the use of power in personal, work and community life. Minnesota chapter of National Association of Minorities in Communications (NAMIC) encouraged its members to be intentional and feel comfortable about the use of power in personal, work and community life. Trainer Wrise D. Booker, president of Reid Dugger Consulting Group, told an audience of communications technicians and managers that it is important for Black people and people of color to examine our personal and collective relationships with power. “Many of us view power as something that is used against us. We need to know it is ok to appropriate all the power we can for the purpose of doing good in our lives, in the lives of our families and workplaces, and in the world.”

The November 14 workshop at Pilot City Neighborhood Services was one of several sponsored by Time Warner Cable - Minnesota, to help build the local NAMIC chapter.

NAMIC promotes developing entrepreneurs of color, ethnic market research, recruitment and career development. Shown above, Wrise D. Booker; Tony Johnson, NAMIC-MN president; Diana Hawkins, NAMIC-MN vice-president; and Eric Brown, president, Time Warner Cable, Minnesota.
