Digital strategist and entrepreneur to speak at Bluffton University

Alaina Shearer, a seasoned speaker and professional change maker, will share her personal and professional journey toward positive social change at 11 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 19 in Yoder Recital Hall.

In Shearer’s professional journey, she quickly realized after graduation that extreme sexism and gender discrimination were rampant in her chosen industry - broadcast journalism and then, again, in her second career path: advertising. In 2016, Shearer realized this wasn’t sustainable and founded her own company – Women in Digital (now Together Digital).

“You will walk away with eyes wide open to face the realities for all, find what is possible when we harness the power within ourselves to make a positive impact, learn how to be a change agent within future employer’s spaces, as well as the industry as a whole,” said Shearer.

This event is free and open to the public.
