Spotlight on Aurelia “Candie” Simmons


A native Cincinnatian, Aurelia “Candie” Simmons’ career as a Business Operation Manager for IBM had her living in several other places before she moved back to the Queen City. When she moved back to Cincinnati, a “Basic Black” series at the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra piqued her interest, along with the group behind it—the founding members of the Multicultural Awareness Council (MAC). She started coming to concerts and was invited to join MAC. In 1999 she became the chair, and ever since she has played a decisive leadership role in developing and executing the CSO’s diversity and inclusion initiatives.
