April practiced law for over 15 years, but her life took an unexpected turn when the lack of people of
color in the 2015 Oscars nominations compelled her to tweet a now-famous hashtag:
#OscarsSoWhite. She has now partnered with Overture Global, a New York-based media company, to launch Ensemble, a digital content studio to accelerate opportunities around content and development for people of color. April is a sought-after advocate, consultant, writer, speaker and interviewer on the
representation of marginalized communities in the arts, tech and entertainment. Her work includes
collaborations with Procter & Gamble, Twitter, Google, AARP, HBO and more.
