This will be Nelson's first time in the Denver region. She will also be signing books at several local venues to be announced later this week. Nelson's first book, "Black Woman Redefined: Dispelling Myths & Discovering Fulfillment in the Age of Michelle Obama," was released in Trade Paperback in November 2012. The book was awarded the Best-Non Fiction award for African American Literature in 2011 in its hardcover release. Nelson has won many awards and accolades for her work in the diversity and inclusion space. Most recently she was named a 2012 Diversity Champion. A very prestigious award in the corporate Fortune 500 community.
Nelson kicked off the official Ready.Set.Redefine.2013. Tour this past February at Alabama A&M University, Comcast/NBCUniversal worldwide headquarters in Philadelphia, and Credit Suisse on Wall Street in New York. She has been on recent stops in San Francisco, Houston, New Orleans, Augusta, and Nashville. She has drawn crowds over 3000 at her speaking events and for her workshop/Life Classes which are capped at 300 people.
Nelson was featured with powerhouses like Kathy Ireland, Jasmine Guy, and others at the "Your Dream Is Out There" Conference on April 17th in Augusta, Georgia. Nelson is on a national tour of colleges, corporations, cities, and communities to help women leaders and professionals of a new generation learn how both to “define” and “redefine”
Nelson's 2nd book, "The Woman Code" will be due out late Fall 2014 or early 2015.
