Our Core Values
Our guiding principles ensure we fulfill our goal of creating an unwavering guide for our community
True empathy is rooted in veracity. We welcome dialogue and discomfort to inspire positive change.
We invite partnership and affiliation with organizations committed to diversity, inclusion, equity, and belonging to move intention to action.
We encourage BIPOC professionals to hone their skills and assert their agency, ensuring individuals succeed as their authentic selves.
HUE strives to help organizations identify and eliminate barriers that have “tokenized” and limited fair treatment, access, opportunity and advancement for BIPOC.
We are committed to transforming culture so that any individual or group feels welcomed, supported, and valued to fully participate within our organization and media.
We honor the dignity of all individuals. We are committed to creating and maintaining safe spaces for BIPOC professionals that embrace their values, backgrounds, and experiences.
"Four years ago I had a vision in the middle of the night to create a community for BIPOC Professionals to tell them about jobs in film and tv and to help them navigate their professional careers. It began as a Facebook group of 27 people and has grown to over 16k. I also realized I could leverage my career as an opportunity to speak with leaders in the industry to create change within their companies."
