Black Girls In Media is a networking organization committed to support and uplift minority women in the media industry.
"Black Girls In Media works with companies to hire diverse talent in the media industry."
"Black women in corporate America are less likely than their male or white colleagues to be promoted or to receive the support and access they need to advance despite being just as ambitious, a report from the Lean In Foundation finds."
By 2021, Black Girls In Media will have placed 200 of their members
in new media job roles.
After Months Of Depression And Feeling Lost And Uninspired;
I came up with the idea to create A Platform Where Women Can Uplift Each Other And Cross Network To Gain Opportunities In Order To Bring Each Other Through Those Corporate Doors.
What started as a small Groupme chat, grew into a worldwide community.
So far, over 300 opportunities have been given to BGIM members and over 5,000 connections have been made.
Im so glad to have you here. Together, we are unstoppable.
