We’re less than three weeks away from 2018, but time flies when you’re building and focused. At the same time, it can also seem to move slow if you’re feeling lost or unsure of your direction. For many People of Color in tech and business, it can feel a lot like you’re lost because you don’t feel as if you’re being well represented. BLNDED is here to change that.
There are a couple of reasons why I’m excited about 2018. For one, the vision for BLNDED Media has come a long way. I look forward to BLNDED becoming the leading platform for the voices of diverse and underrepresented entrepreneurs based on our mission to change the narrative of People of Color in tech by bringing their stories to the masses.
My second reason is because the BLNDED team is growing. I’m excited to announce our newest team members:
- Alexis M. Davis, Cofounder/Chief Digital Officer
- Jonathan Hackworth, Cofounder/Chief Technology Officer
- Nakevia Miller, Art Director
I’m very proud to work alongside them to bring the BLNDED platform to those who need it the most. I’m also humbled by the love and support of our advisory team of Kristine Bryant, Ruben Cantu, and Zack Rothauser. I love how our company is shaping up to reflect diversity in so many forms.
Our team is preparing to launch our updated website in January 2018. With our launch, we’re focused on bringing more stories of people supporting diverse and underrepresented communities together. We hope to spark new conversations, close the opportunity gap, and empower unheard voices. We have a lot of work to do, but also a responsibility to see it all the way through.
If you are troubled or irritated with the status quo of People of Color in tech, business, or media then we want to hear from you! Drop us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It takes a great team and a willing community to bring about true change on a massive scale. Join the BLNDED community and help us change the narrative and culture of diversity in tech.
Happy Holidays from the BLNDED Fam!
