Vice President, Program Scheduling & Promotion Strategy, REVOLT Media & TV

You know you’ve made it when you’re selected to speak at the White House. Sills was chosen to speak at the First Lady’s “Better Make Room” initiative to promote youth pursuing higher education. She’s been promoted to vp of programming and scheduling & promo strategy. As an executive board member of The Black Women Film Network, she helped create the first-ever Black Women Film Summit. Adding to her accomplishments, she was recognized as WICT’s 2016 Rising Leader. “I dedicate one hour every morning to reading,” says Sills when asked what habit makes her most successful.

What is the most exciting thing about working in this industry?

It’s all very exciting – the people, the competition, the unpredictability, and the unforeseen technology. What’s most exciting is the increase of programming content that is produced and directed by women and content that stars multicultural casts. I love the availability of richer storytelling from all different walks of life in cable, broadcast and digital.

What sort of culture is important to you in the workplace?

A workplace culture that values collaboration, is inclusive of all employees, pushes innovation, appreciates forward thinkers, and has a high energy environment is important to me to do my best work.

What is the one habit that makes you most successful?

I dedicate one hour every morning to reading. It not only inspires me, but expands my knowledge base to understand trends, shakeups and innovation that drives our business and shapes the world.
