I’m Ashley Gaddy, the founder and head consultant of Ashley Gaddy Enterprises.
Social Justice Education, Social Change, and Empowerment efforts are my passions and I believe everyone has the ability to use them positively!
As a Black southern woman working at predominately white institutions, I spend much of my time advocating for underrepresented students, faculty, and staff and learning about the issues they face. I am also dedicated to educating and serving the community, working with non-profit organizations, and building partnerships with corporations and government.
My professional background started in corporate communications and transitioned to higher education. My experience in the university began in Housing and has branched into other academic areas, including serving in the classroom as an instructor.
I received my Bachelor’s in Communication Studies and Master’s in Liberal Studies from the University of North Carolina Wilmington. I am currently a doctoral candidate, defending fields: Postcolonial Feminism and Biopolitics in the Cultural Studies PhD program at George Mason University.
I love spending time with family and friends and my dog, Bobo, while relaxing on the beach! I love good food and live music! I am also a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Thank you for visiting my page and I am excited about this work and look forward to connecting.
