Black Women Creators Conference 2020 - August 29th & 30th
It’s The First Ever Black Women Creators Virtual Conference.
Nashville, TN (August 24, 2020)
Join Cool Girls Create for the Official 2020 Conference for Black Women Content Creators on August 29 & 30. The virtual conference will feature exclusive workshops for Black women who want to elevate their creative careers. The Black Women Creators Conference will provide actionable strategies and hope to women of color who would like to start their own businesses, enhance their impact in creative industries or broaden creative roles in nontraditional industries.
According to the BWCC’s website: “Black Women make up 3% of Chief Creative Officer roles for big companies and there have only been 2 Black Women to head Fortune 500 Companies." With these numbers there is a tremendous opportunity for women to bring more creativity to their business pursuits.
The conference will feature presentations from more than 20 top Black women creative visionaries from various industries on the topics of: creative career building, creative entrepreneurship, business development, monetizing your art, tv & film production, creative directing, the music industry, journalism, blogging, modeling, fashion design, Black women’s cultural impact, financial stability & wealth building for creatives, branding and content creation.
One of our featured presenters will be Harvard graduate Claire Sulmers, founder of Fashion Bomb Daily and book author of “The Bomb Life”, who will share her insights on being a Black Woman Creator. Access to someone at her level will give participants a chance to get answers they need to level up their creative ventures and diversify their lives.
