March Mayhem…and beyond

It’s been a mad couple of months! Between Leyya taking a break to Texas to visit her sister and Roshni turning 30, we’ve been busy getting sh*t done and making sh*t happen! As we look on to April and beyond, we just wanted to share a few pieces we’ve been involved in and have coming up.

Happy 30th Birthday Roshni!

This month in particular, we had our first interview feature in Sistra Zine, our video discussing asian women stereotypes with Huffington Post launched and Leyya shared her own creative inspiration tips as part of Young Creative Council’s #AdHERtising campaign for international women’s day. Check out all the other quotes from #girlbosses giving advice to their younger selves here.

Coming up in April, we’re speaking at the Diversity in Marketing and Advertising summit at Channel 4. Sitting on a panel chaired by Poorna Bell from Huffington Post, we’ll be giving our perspective on why diversity in the creative industries needs to be talked about more, and what we can do to change things. Having seen the speaker line-up, it looks like we’ll be in very good company.

We’re also teaming up with General Assembly for a panel discussion on diversity in the workplace on May 23rd at The Hoxton. All our upcoming (and past) events are now on our handy events section, so make sure you keep popping by there to see what else we’re plotting and planning.

AND finally...we’ve had a tonne of very exciting chai's and chats with some of the loveliest people supporting our cause. We’re definitely not alone in our mission, and we’re so excited about turning talk into action.

P.s. Make sure you read our first guest blog post too by Caryn Coley on 'Black Imposter Syndrome' here.
