about the speaker
Majora combines her corporate consulting practice focused on Talent-Retention, and her first-hand experience pioneering sustainable economic development in one of America's most storied low-status communities: the South Bronx. Her focus harnesses the tremendous capital flows resulting from widespread re-urbanization among all ages, races, and income levels, to help entrench wealth building opportunities across demographics that are increasingly left out of this historic financial tide change, and produce long term fiscal benefits to all sectors of government as well as leading private real estate developments.
Her ability to shepherd teams through sometimes difficult socio-economic conflict has garnered a very long list of awards and honorary PhDs, including a MacArthur 'genius' Fellowship, a Peabody Award, 100 Most Intriguing Entrepreneurs by Goldman Sachs, Best for the World by B-Corp, Silicon Alley 100 by Business Insider, Liberty Medal for Lifetime Achievement by Fox News, and other honors from the National Building Museum, International Interior Design Association, Center for American Progress, as well as her TEDtalk which was one of six to launch their site in 2006. has served on the boards of the USGBC, and she is quoted in the permanent collection of the Smithsonian Museum of African-American History and Culture: "Nobody should have to move out of their neighborhood to live in a better one."
