Did you know 73% of creatives are White and only 8.5% are Black?
I’m often the only Black creative on all the teams I’ve ever worked with throughout my almost 10-year career. I know lots of Black women who want to work in the creative field but just don’t feel like they can break through—or they just haven’t been able to.
We not only need diversity in the work that we put out but in the talent that goes into making it. We are stronger together.
Over the years, I’ve had to stand up to pandering, teach coworkers about culture all while going above and beyond to prove myself in my work.
Being talented doesn’t always mean being accepted. But we can push through barriers. Please join me for this conversation on August 26!
