The Brown Women in Media Brunch is Providing Women of Color 'A Seat at the Table' in the Media Industry
Written by Ny Qunaa
Makeba Green grew tired of the lack of representation of brown women in the media field. Hence, at the tender age of 19, she launched the Brown Women in Media Brunch. Her goal was to bolster the confidence of women of color in media so they could be successful in the industry. Three years later, the Brunch has now become a recognition and educational event that provides attendees with the tools to be successful.
Makeba Green, now 22, is an entrepreneur, philanthropist, author, speaker, educator, and mentor who is breaking the mold for brown women in media. The objective of the Brown Women in Media Brunch is to create a space for attendees to learn about the ins and outs of the media industry and offer opportunities to network with leaders of color in the industry. Attendees are encouraged to break negative stigma and stereotypes of women of color in media.
During this year's brunch, attendees will have the opportunity to get free headshots, learn about public relations, and get free resume critique services. They will also meet with people of color who are making an impact in all segments in media and get an opportunity to learn from them through workshops and panel discussion.
