We teamed up with HellaTurnt UK to bring you an International Women’s Day event which focused on educating women on how to navigate the creative industry (as a Black woman in the diaspora) with advice from carefully curated industry professionals. Hosted by Sia (BK Chat cast member and founder of The Disgusted campaign) and Faith (1/4 of Lets Talk podcast) this event was super useful.

Section 1: Representation of women in the media industry, negotiating your worth (using Monique as a point of reference), pros & cons of a start up brand and Black women supporting one another and evaluating support systems

Section 2: How to market oneself/ the brand, the role of social media and pushing careers, self-care and working + having a side hustle, juggling dating and also being a working entrepreneur and learning how to budget/investing .

We hope everyone that attended the event left with a wealth of knowledge and we look forward to seeing you at next events.
