Chalk PR launched a partnership with the SYWT group in May 2020, recognising that the beauty communications industry is predominantly channelled through white faces and voices and wanting to help change this. The partnership's aim was to support women of colour wanting to join the field of Beauty PR, working with inclusive PR expert Iman Leila Bokolo, the founder of SYWT. PR agency Monty joined the initiative in June, also offering valuable workshops and mentorships for Iman's members.
Clearly there is still a need for more support, particularly in the area of internships. If you have an agency or are part of an in-house team and are able to offer internship placements or are looking to hire staff, please contact Iman directly. If you would like to know more about Chalk PR or Monty’s initiatives please contact Emma Elliott at Chalk PR or Krishna Montgomery at Monty and they will be happy to share their insights.
