Our Story 

"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."
