How do I become a member?

Simply click ‘Join’ on our homepage.

How much does it cost?

Talent membership is FREE as we want to make sure that we are accessible to all Black women and non-binary people. Our members receive access to our exclusive community hub where they can connect with other members and share experiences. We host specially curated events and programmes including networking events, mentoring and panel talks with industry professionals. Members can also opt-in to receive our monthly newsletter.

What about production companies, recruiters and employers? 

Employers, recruiters and production companies can access talent via our diary service and/or post jobs on our internal jobs board. We also welcome organisations to join our Company Directory and partner with us to help champion diversity in post production.

I’m a new entrant/trainee. Is this for me?

Absolutely! The industry recruits through networks so we’ve created our own. The market is saturated with various recruitment platforms and some even have restricting criteria, particularly for new entrants (e.g. minimum of 3 broadcast credits). That’s where we come in! We have zero requisites. This platform is exclusively for you to connect with other women just like you, engage in discussions, learn and receive support in navigating your way through an industry largely dominated by cronyism and tokenism. It is a community created by a woman of Black mixed heritage for women of Black or Black Mixed heritage to empower you to feel that you are valued in the industry and supported by the industry.
