About Our Speaker

Vera Minot is the Creative Director for, and part owner of, Southwest Solutions – an award winning marketing materials company.  She is a heart-first professional who’s known for her creativity; aversion to small talk; and appreciation of good vocabulary and clever marketing materials.  She studied Linguistics and Gender & Women’s Studies at the University of Arizona, and after stints in a variety of industries that converged into a unique perspective on business and humans, she joined the team at SWS. She never knew she’d love her industry so much, but every business or organization has a unique brand story to tell, and when she realized promotional products & custom apparel not only don’t have to be straight-to-the-trash-swag – but they can even be conduits for human connection – she was hooked! Vera is the immediate past Board President of the Tucson LGBT Chamber of Commerce (AKA the Gaymber); cultivating a safe space for queer folks in business as well as a space of learning for allies, who are tremendously important to the LGBTQIA+ community. She believes Inclusive Business is Good Business, and because she knows the LGBTQIA+ community is a vital part of America as business owners, employers, employees, and consumers, she works tirelessly to support Tucson’s local LGBTQ+ and allied business community. When she doesn’t have her SWS or Gaymber hats on, you’ll find her being active, tending to too many houseplants, reading, and hanging out with her wife and their cats.

Thank you Southwest Solutions for sponsoring this CEO Roundtable!
