SOCS Speaks
Matching dynamic Skin of Color Society Experts with public-facing opportunities to engage, enlighten and educate

SOCS Speaks is our new hub of Skin of Color Society leaders and members who stand ready to serve as experts for:

  • Media interviews and contributions—spanning a wide array of print, digital, and broadcast news outlets, including: health/medicine, beauty, dermatology, and mainstream media;
  • Speaking engagements before academic, dermatology, industry, patient, and community audiences;
  • Social media collaborations with SOCS supporters and patient advocacy, dermatology, and health organizations;
  • Consulting projects for medical/healthcare organizations;
  • Special branded or co-branded multimedia projects.

Established in 2022, SOCS Speaks was sparked by an unprecedented surge of interest in, and demand for, Skin of Color Society experts to weigh in on highly relevant topics in dermatology, healthcare, science and society. 

Many of our SOCS Speaks Experts have undergone media training through the American Academy of Dermatology and other organizations, and/or have had substantial experience in speaking to the media, public speaking, and social media activity. 

All SOCS Speaks participants are provided with guidelines for Best Practices for Media Interviews, Speaking Engagements, and Social Media Collaborations, as well as SOCS Diversity in Action talking points.
