HR and DEI Consultancy, Blue Haired Unicorn, Launches Directory of — and for — Black Speakers

Madison Butler, founder of HR and DEI consultancy Blue Haired Unicorn, wrote a LinkedIn post that became a directory of Black speakers, the Black Speakers Collection website.

Madison posted a reminder on her LinkedIn page: “Do not wait until January 15th to try and book your speakers for Black History Month,” she wrote, “and do not ask them to speak for free.”

Later in her post, noting that Black people can talk about things other than DEI and Blackness, she encouraged Black speakers to drop into her LinkedIn feed their topic expertise and contact info.
