Marshawn Evans, author of SKIRTS in the Boardroom, will be the featured guest on Economic Perspectives on skirtsDecember 22.  Dinita Caldwell, a member of the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority’s Economic Development Committee, will be a guest co-host for the Evans interview.

According to Evans, women make up one-third of Fortune 500 managers, but make up less five percent of the top executive earners in the country. Through SKIRTS, which stands for Sisterhood, Knowledge, Integrity, Respect, Tenacity, and Substance, she provides inspiring business advice to professional women looking to take their careers and lives to the next level.

In the introduction to SKIRTS, Evans ,who appeared on Season 4 of Donald Trump’s television show, The Apprentice, writes that SKIRTS  “is a book about success, success on your own terms in a world where being on a show like The Apprentice is not the summit of your achievements, but merely one more piece of the puzzle that makes you CEO of you, of your career, and your destiny.”

Besides her appearance on The Apprentice, Evans is an entertainment attorney and founder of ME Unlimited, a corporate consulting firm specializing in peak performance, diversity and in developing life-dynamic leadership strategies for women.  She graduated with honors from Texas Christian University with a bachelors degree, and earned a law degree from Georgetown University.
