Mark your calendars for the 6th Black Women in Media Conference & Awards for November 15 to November 20th, with the final awards ceremony occurring on the 20th from 6 pm until 10 pm EST. Not only is it a great event to celebrate the successes and triumphs and Black Women in media, but it also serves as an excellent opportunity to connect more with these women and other individuals who are interested in empowering and uplifting Black women, especially in the media space. 

The Black Women in Media Conference & Awards has been both a huge and important success in the past, with a wide variety of events including Fireside Chats, Career Advancement Panels, Tech Panels, and several Keynote speakers. All of these presentations and more have made previous iterations enormously beneficial for those wanting to learn the ins and outs of several different industries and how one can be particularly successful in those spaces as a Black Woman. With an all-new group of speakers, this year’s conference is sure to be an important tool for success and recognizing the many great and influential Black Women already influencing their workspaces.

The 6th Black Women in Media Conference & Awards seeks to provide prominent speakers and a large-scale environment associated with award shows of this size while still providing a safe environment to do so.
