Starting this week, ten outstanding BIPOC content creators, selected for their excellence in digital entrepreneurship, will participate in the intensive eight-week program. The second cohort, comprised exclusively of women, includes leaders from finance, real estate, food, wellness, lifestyle, and activism.
As announced by CafeMedia in a press release, the Remarkable Voices program will prepare participants to grow their audience and income with greater autonomy as they progress through a series of workshops, presentations, and mentoring tracks and gain access to a network of industry experts. Topics will include brand and content strategy, audience development and engagement, monetization, etc.
“We believe the empowerment of more BIPOC creators will make for richer, more authentic representation of their stories, cultures, and experiences on the open web,” said Michael Sanchez, Chief Executive Officer, CafeMedia. “Remarkable Voices seeks to address gaps in representation and offer these exceptional creators increased access to training, insights, and an expanded network that will help them turn their digital entrepreneurship into viable, owned, and operated businesses for the long term. We are delighted to support them throughout the program and beyond.”
Participants in the Fall 2021 edition of Remarkable Voices include Imma Adamu, Kendra Barnes, Nitika Chopra, Tinger Hseih, Aileen Luib, Vanessa Mota, Marta Rivera Diaz, Renee “Renz” Robley, Kimberly Smith, and Nzinga Young.
