Morgan DeBaun is the founder & CEO of Blavity Inc., the leading digital media company for Black culture and millennials. As the founder and CEO of Blavity, the leading digital media company for Black culture, we’ve recognized and celebrated Black talent for years. Now, diversity and inclusion are finally a part of the mainstream conversation when it comes to hiring and retention. But whether you’re new to that conversation or have been part of it for years, no one gets it right every time — including me. Here’s what I’ve learned over my years of recruiting, and my four top tips for hiring and retaining Black talent in the current market: Know that Black talent can tell if diversity is just a buzzword. Right from the start of the hiring process, the right mindset is key. The most crucial aspect is that you understand diversity and inclusion as a business strategy. It’s been proven time and time again that when DE&I is a true company value, it leads to better outcomes. DE&I is not simply a way to meet legal requirements or to check a box. If that’s your attitude, it won’t work – because Black talent can read through the performative process . What’s more, we are in demand and we have choices when seeking new employers. People want a workplace that prioritizes good values, from mental well-being to inclusivity, and that’s not a Black thing. The younger generations of talent expect an inclusive and equitable culture, and company leaders should want that as well. It’s a business imperative, not just the right thing to do. Show experienced Black talent that they can be comfortable bringing their whole selves to work Read Full Article: https://www.msnbc.com/know-your-value/business-culture/blavity-ceo-morgan-debaun-diversity-equity-inclusion-n1295316

Six years ago, producer Will Packer was among the Hollywood luminaries who called out the Academy Awards for a lack of diversity in their Oscar nominations. His film, NWA biopic Straight Outta Compton, was among those that critics believed was snubbed. Its sole nomination was for best original screenplay. But this year, Packer — a St. Petersburg native and son of a local civil rights activist — is on the other side of the controversy. The filmmaker whose billion-dollar production resume also includes Ride Along, Stomp the Yard and the remake of Roots, is producing the 94th Academy Awards ceremony to be held Sunday at 8 p.m. Read Full Article: https://www.tampabay.com/life-culture/arts/movies/2022/03/23/st-petersburgs-will-packer-leads-the-first-all-black-team-oscar-production-team/

Jazz is the low moan of a saxophone, the growl of a trumpet, or staccato notes on a snare drum. Jazz at Lincoln Center (JALC) describes the art form as “a mingling of the musical expressions of all the people who came to the United States, by choice or by force; people from Africa, Europe, Latin America, as well as people who were already living in the U.S. Jazz was created by mixing together music from field chants and spirituals, to African rhythms and folk songs.” Jazz at Lincoln Center produces a year-round schedule of performance, education, and broadcast events for audiences of all ages. Renowned jazz trumpeter Wynton Marsalis is the artistic director. Read More: https://nafme.org/how-jazz-and-the-civil-rights-movement-intertwine/
