Project Description

With audiences demanding greater diversity on screen, in 2019 we saw a 6.7% increase in Black actors from 2017.  Unfortunately, with diversity in studio leadership, there isn't much progress.  According to the 2020 UCLA Hollywood Diversity Report, Unit Heads remain White (86%) and male (59%) and increase when moving to Senior Executives (93% White and 80% male) and Chairmans/CEO's (91% White and 82% male).  The Ankler published an article that highlighted executives featured on nine studios' websites and of the 217 executives highlighted, six (3%) are Black women.  Other than that, statistics for Black women in Media and Entertainment, specifically, are difficult to find.

Sister Circle is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit that focuses on building career initiatives that increase knowledge, access, community, equality, and service for Black women in Media and Entertainment.  We host monthly member discussions that encourage financial, physical, and mental wellness and we just launched our Mentor Circle program where we matched 16 women with five executives in Media and Entertainment.

Aside from the milestones we have already achieved, with your help, we would like to do the following:

  • Host monthly networking with industry leaders and executives events to provide more access to Black women in the industry.   Estimated cost $580 per event, $7,000 total for one year.
  • Invite keynote speakers annually to encourage our members to succeed in these spaces.  Estimated cost $1,000 total.
  • Organize quarterly activations to provide tools for our members to get their foot in the door.  Estimated cost $500 per month, $2,000 total.
