Harris, a native New Yorker, began her public relations career with the United States Environmental Protection Agency in 1990.

By using her platform to tackle issues of diversity and inclusion and generate thoughtful, positive, and newsworthy stories, Harris continues to amplify the voices of marginalized and underserved communities.
“As an advocate for diversity, I am both humbled and excited about this opportunity to be a part of an organization that has an intentional and solid commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion embedded in how the GMCVB operates internally externally,” states Harris.
As a savvy businesswoman and single mother, Yvette’s approach is distinctive. Her innate understanding of the traditional and ever-changing media landscape, harnessed with a passion for positivity and enthusiasm, has resulted in her unique network of long-term and mutually beneficial partnerships. She has carved out a niche within the community, business, arts and culture, and Caribbean landscape.
