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 2022, Black Girls In Media will have placed 200 of their members
in new media job roles.
After months of feeling lost and uninspired; Tasha 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 one another through those corporate doors.
What started as a small GroupMe chat, grew into a worldwide community. So far, over 1,000 opportunities have been given to BGIM members with an audience of over 80 thousand people worldwide.
Im so glad to have you here. Together, we are unstoppable.

Having friends and family in different professional industries than her, she had no one to vent to, or assist with these issues. She then began noting the extreme difficulty that women of color face breaking into the corporate world and gaining equal opportunity.
