    Meet Our New Team Member: Adiya Mobley

    We are very excited to welcome our newest team member to SRB Communications, Adiya Mobley,

    Vice President of Marketing and Communications. We thought it would be fun to have her answer a few questions about herself so we can learn more about her journey to SRB. Read on to find out what she had to say!

    Name: Adiya Mobley

    Hometown: Atlantic City, NJ

     

    Tell us a little bit about your background:

    I am what I like to say, “your everyday agency girl.” I have 10 years’ experience working at some of the leading marketing agencies in the world. And I’m ready to bring my breadth of experience in creative marketing, content, digital brand storytelling to

    SRB Communications and its roster of client partners. From entertainment to philanthropy, I have had a beautiful career working across several industries (one of the many perks working at an agency). And I’m passionate about bringing a multicultural lens to every project I have the opportunity to contribute to, which I believe gives me a competitive edge over the landscape of today’s marketers.

     

    Why did you want to work for SRB Communications?

    After meeting Dr. Brooks and the SRB team, I knew immediately I’d be able to make a significant impact to the work. SRB Communications has a culture of creativity, mentorship, leadership and inclusivity.

    I had the opportunity to first come on board at SRB Communications as a consultant, but then quickly felt empowered by the team to contribute in an even bigger capacity. Additionally, Dr. Brooks is a legend in her own right, and is the quintessential leader. I believe I can learn so much from her! This is a marketer’s dream come true.

     

    What has your career taught you? Tell us a little bit about your background:

    I’ve learned that marketing is multicultural at its core. And in order to make a positive brand impact, you need to create messaging and tell stories specifically for targeted communities.

     

    Describe yourself in 5 words:

    Integrity-Driven, Leader, Extroverted-Introvert

     

    Favorite movie:

    I have so many! Perhaps it’s a toss up between Love Jones and Forest Gump.

     

    Favorite book:

    This is another tough one! I’m currently rediscovering The Bluest Eye by the late, great Toni Morrison. That book is brilliant.

     

    What do you hope to accomplish in your new role?

    My goal is to bring best-in-class execution to the already incredible work we do at SRB Communications.

     

    Life motto:

    “Be a rainbow in some else’s cloud.”  -Maya Angelou

     

    We’re excited and happy to have Adiya on board!

    CEO, DR. SHEILA BROOKS, NOMINATED FOR NAACP IMAGE AWARD

    Washington, D.C., March 5, 2019 – Dr. Sheila Brooks, founder, president and CEO of SRB Communications – an advertising, marketing and PR agency based in Washington, D.C., was nominated for an NAACP Image Award in the Outstanding Literary Work category for “Debut Author.”

    Her book, “Lucile H. Bluford and the Kansas City Call: Activist Voice for Social Justice,” discusses the life and pioneering work of Lucile H. Bluford, an activist, editor and publisher during the civil rights and women’s rights movements, who is little known outside of the Midwest. It traces the beginnings of her activism as a young reporter seeking admission to the graduate program in journalism at the University of Missouri-Columbia and details how that battle became the catalyst for her seven-decade career as a champion of racial and gender equality.

    While being an author is a new title for Brooks, being in the spotlight is something she is no stranger to. The award-winning journalist and entrepreneur is an advocate for minority, women and diversity issues and an expert in multicultural marketing and entrepreneurial education.

    “I cannot put into words how important this nomination is to me, especially with it being the 50th year of this esteemed ceremony,” said Brooks, “I want to offer my utmost gratitude to the NAACP for selecting me to be a nominee in the Debut Author category. I also want to congratulate the other nominees in my category! The nomination alone provides a fantastic platform to increase exposure for the inspiring story of my heroine, Ms. Bluford. And that alone is a ‘win’ for me.”

    The NAACP Image Awards is the preeminent multicultural awards show celebrating the accomplishments of people of color in the fields of television, music, literature and film, and also honors individuals or groups who promote social justice through creative endeavors. Each year, this all-star event is attended by many of the top names in the entertainment industry. The annual awards “live” show will be filmed in Los Angeles and airs on TV One on Saturday, March 30.

    “With TV One as our partner for the 50th Anniversary of the NAACP Image Awards, we are delighted to have a platform to showcase artists and individuals of color and celebrate their talents and contributions,” stated president and CEO of the NAACP Derrick Johnson.
