Meet Erika Velazquez Alpern & Alison Meyer!

As we gear up for the meetup next Wed, 9/14, we'd love to introduce you to our speakers.

Erika Velazquez Alpern is the CEO and Founder of Tactile, a company created to change the ratio. Tactile operates two agencies – a branding and marketing studio for female-owned and female-focused start-ups, and an agency that helps companies of all sizes foster an inclusive workplace for women.  Additionally, Erika serves as the VP of Marketing and Communications for the New Republic, an award-winning magazine of big ideas in politics and culture.

Group Client Director, Alison Meyer started at Refinery29 within its brand experiences team in 2012 when ‘native advertising” was just an emerging buzzword. With past experiences at Vogue and Martha Stewart Living, Alison chose publishing to start her career because of her love of editorial content and curiosity for how it can be harnessed for brands. In her time at R29, Alison has contributed to this growing global media company by working with a breadth of fashion, retail, and beauty brands to create breakthrough content and experiences.
