Niyo Enterprise is returning with another summit in Birmingham called the Black DistruptHER 2021. Black History Month is an opportunity for us as a society to reflect on and celebrate the valuable contributions of people of African and Caribbean descent, taking note of our achievements and contributions to the social, political, economic, and cultural development of the UK. It is also an opportunity for us to highlight and platform the challenges we face as a community and focus on solutions to tackle them in sustainable ways.
Over here at Niyo Enterprise, our core mission is to economically empower Black women and provide effective solutions to the issues we face in the technology, hair & beauty, and creative industries.
These industries are full of exciting and rewarding opportunities! But can feel out of reach to us as Black women. We know there is a real skills gap between what you need to do your job and what you actually know and that you may feel like you don’t have the relevant skills required for the workforce of the future. In addition to this, as a Black woman, it can be hard to make professional connections in these industries – which is odd because Black women can be the best networkers! We seek to connect with those who will uplift us as well as those who can benefit from our insight and knowledge.
Our Vision at Niyo Enterprise is that one day, Black women will enjoy equitable access to the life-changing opportunities in these industries and will be fully equipped to take advantage of these opportunities. We want to play a role in making this vision a reality!
This is why in honour of UK Black History Month, Niyo Enterprise is proud to bring you another summit. If you attended our Beyond Hair Summit last year, we promise that this one will be even bigger and better!
