Author, Entertainment Publicist, and Entrepreneur, Tavia MD Presents The Future Is Female

Tavia Mapp-Deterville, affectionately known as Tavia MD is the creator of The Future is Female which is a 501c3 organization and a platform that is aimed at creating an inspirational vehicle that empowers female entrepreneurs through conversation, support, and connection.

It quantifies a series of powerful events that introduces networking, skill development, economic independence, professional growth, and career balancing. It is an empowerment experience for the way-making women of the entertainment, nonprofit and digital marketing world.

The Future is Female operates in a way for business owners and young professionals to unite and form life-long connections. The mission of The Future is Female is to inspire and empower female entrepreneurs by creating a space for networking, skill development, and encouragement for economic independence and professional growth.

The initiative for The Future is Female continues to progress and has been implemented in various cities including New York, Atlanta, North Carolina, and Los Angeles. The organizational structure was virtual for last year’s summit due to Covid.
