BWIPP Community Guidelines

Welcome to the Black Women in Post Production (BWIPP) Community! 

The BWIPP Community Hub is a positive, professional space for Black and Black mixed heritage women to connect, communicate and collaborate. 

Together, we are building a thriving community and shaping the future of our industry by building networks that are all too often out of reach for us.

To facilitate effective networking, we require all members to add their information to the BWIPP Members List. This list helps us maintain transparency and keep everyone connected. Adding your details is a crucial part of the joining process.

As our community grows, it’s essential that we all contribute to maintaining a respectful and supportive environment. To help us achieve this, we have established the following guidelines. Please read through them carefully and adhere to them to ensure BWIPP remains a safe and productive space for everyone.

This community  has been curated to empower you to feel that you are valued in the industry and supported by the industry but it only works if we all take part. Please contribute positively to keep this a professional safe and inclusive space. 

We believe in the power of Black/Black Mixed heritage women and non-binary creatives coming together to share experiences and opportunities in a safe space and as part of a community. 

Follow Us:

Love and light,

Team BWIPP
