A large part of This Brown Queen is the support and empowerment of brown girls. Since starting the blog I’m so happy to have really been able to make some awesome connections and meet so many inspiring women both here in Philly, around the country, and online. Blogging perks at it’s finest. Most recently I’ve been able to connect with a fellow Philly girl who just achieved the esteem honor of being named the African American Chamber of Commerce Young Professional of the Year! Danielle is the CEO of Affairs of Isis and one of the hardest working girls I know! Check out the this awesome recap of the event honoring Ms. Jeter.
On Wednesday April 30, 2014, The African American Chamber of Commerce of PA, NJ, and DE hosted their annual meeting at The First District Plaza. This year’s theme was “Here for the Making – Moving Beyond Surviving and Towards Success” – a perfect opportunity to award CEO and founder of Affairs of Isis, Danielle P. Jeter, as the 2014 Young Professional of the Year. The AACC honors members that uplift the community, actively participate in a multitude of organizations, and who continue to reach new heights of success. Danielle has displayed these qualities through her company, Affairs of Isis, and through her community involvement. The Young Professional of the Year award recognizes a member of The African American Chamber of Commerce who is committed to growing as a professional and understands the value of civic and community engagement.
Danielle P. Jeter founded Affairs of Isis Events, LLC in 2009, a full service communications firm based out of Philadelphia, PA. Services rendered include full service production, event planning, project management, staffing, public relations, marketing, and business consulting. Affairs of Isis works with several community non-profit organizations focused on arts & culture, women’s empowerment, education, and youth (i.e. STEMNASIUM LEARNING Academy, Grand Hank Productions and Rising Sons) to provide them with the resources necessary to achieve their overall organizational goals. Through Affairs of Isis, Jeter has also offered roughly ten internships over the past five years to provide hands-on experience to young professionals who are interested in communications and entrepreneurship.
She currently works with The African American Chamber of Commerce of PA, NJ, and DE serving as the Young Professional lead. Jeter was instrumental in founding the new Young Professional Network at the AACC in 2012. “I’m passionate about making sure that our youth and young professionals have access to resources, tools and opportunities to further their development so that when the torch is passed, they will be ready to lead,” Jeter says, “that’s why I decided to become involved with the African American Chamber of Commerce.”
She is also affiliated with Dean Weitzman of My Philly Lawyer, Radio One Philadelphia, The Office of State Senator Vincent Hughes, Comcast, Verizon Wireless, Eatible Delights Catering, and DJ Shizz, CEO of Jeter Productions. In addition, Danielle serves on the Board of Directors for the National Alumnae Association of Spelman College Philadelphia Chapter and was accepted into the National Coalition of 100 Black Women Philadelphia Chapter during Summer 2013. Jeter plans to continue building the Affairs of Isis brand as a national lifestyle and mission marketing firm, passionate about community relations and service.
