QUADIO's Chief Growth Officer, Miranda Martell, shares, "We are thrilled to be partnering with The Aux for Black History Month Club! From the moment we were introduced, the strong synergy between our two brand missions — to champion emerging talent — made the decision to collaborate on programming an easy one. We’re all so humbled to be joined by incredible guest speakers for our BHMC events this month, and excited to create space to celebrate and support the next generation of Black creatives."
