LOS ANGELES (March 15, 2018) – AfroLife announces that investment executive Monique Woodward has joined the efforts to launch the global media destination focused on the African American audience. Monique has world-class experience and global recognition from Silicon Valley to Asia Pacific and can be found regularly speaking about the challenges founders and businesses of color face in the ever-challenging venture capital and private equity space.

Monique enjoys working in consumer technology and has helped numerous companies execute market strategy, define new products, and align product positioning and messaging.
"It’s incredible that the AfroLife dream from three years ago has attracted someone with the pedigree that Monique has. If you’ve ever met Monique, you immediately understand how powerful her drive and focus on serving our community is. She is the epitome of a true servant leader and for that, along with her excitement about our success, we are forever grateful.
