NAL Media and Black Visionaries Partner to Create A Series of In-Person and Virtual Events for Underrepresented Professionals in Media
July 6, 2022
BROOKLYN, NY – NAL Media (Brij) and Black Visionaries are partnering to create a series of workshops and events to continue their effort in providing resources and opportunities for underrepresented creative professionals in the media industry.
Last month, NAL Media launched Brij– a mentorship matching app for underrepresented creatives to network. Following the launch, NAL and Black Visionaries– a community created for thought leaders, advocates, and multi-hyphenate professionals across industries – agreed on a partnership as both companies share a vision to uplift underrepresented communities.
Black Visionaries serves as a platform to provide Black professionals across all industries with opportunities to network, resources for career/business advancement, and professional development. In addition to hosting/spreading awareness of in-person events, the brand leverages social media platforms, such as TikTok and Instagram, to provide career advice and resources to its followers and viewers in an engaging and relevant way. Similarly, Brij uses a “swipe left, swipe right” matching system (think: Tinder or Hinge, but for mentorship) for creative professionals to find their perfect mentor and/or mentee in an easy and fun way.
“We’re excited to launch our Summer speaker series starting Wednesday, July 27, and continuing throughout the summer season on the fourth Wednesday of [each] month. In partnership with Black Visionaries, we will cover topics such as branding yourself as a creative professional, crafting your career roadmap, and how to amplify your side hustle,” shared NAL Media CEO and Founder Naomi Lilly via a weekly newsletter.
The first workshop of the series, “Branding Yourself As a Creative Professional,” will be held virtually on Wednesday, July 27th at 7 pm EST. To register for the event, click here.
