In May 2021, Dana Ray, who is now a communications consultant, gave a keynote presentation for Creative Mornings DC. The talk introduced the core framework she uses in her business to help unboxable leaders name their work so they can be heard and known. Creative Mornings DC is part of the international organization that hosts breakfast lecture series; the DC chapter is much beloved and regularly draws hundreds of attendees to locations around the US capitol city. The opening story of the presentation comes from her year as a Fulbright ETA.
Dana holds a Master’s in Literature and Writing from Bucknell University. She continues to work internationally and is based in Washington, D.C. Her writing in art and business criticism can be found at danamray.com and in her weekly “Words Are Action”.
