I’m Founder and CEO of Angelique Adams Media Solutions LLC, a platform dedicated to helping diverse talent excel in their careers by delivering the best actionable advice from successful insiders.

I know first-hand the challenges of being underrepresented at work. Despite being laughed at by professors when I told them I wanted to pursue a Ph.D., I had a successful career in the metals and mining sector, most recently serving as Chief Innovation Officer at multibillion dollar European steelmaker Aperam. You can learn more about my career path here.

After more than 20 years in corporate innovation I discovered my true passion is developing people, not products. Following the successful publication of my first career guide, You’re More Than a Diversity Hire­: Women in STEM, I became a media entrepreneur. I now create books, online courses, and coaching programs.

I live in Knoxville, TN with my husband and 2 children.
