Turn Up and Be Present!
We have a new podcast episode for you!
In this episode of Why Not Lead?, Kike Oniwinde (Founder & CEO of BYP Network) and Dee Stirling (Executive Coach & Advisor to CEOs worldwide) discuss Turn Up and Be Present - the best ways to go about being within senior spaces. Serving you executive realness, Dee sheds light on the importance of self value and most of all, self belief.
We Want Networks
In Spring 2019, we'll be launching a brand new app. It's a platform that allows black professionals to seamlessly connect with existing groups and niche networks. Whether it's through sharing events or highlighting important opportunities - joining this app will grow your community. We'll be working with an initial group of networks to ensure our app has everything that they need. These groups will be the initial cohort on the platform at launch.
Want to get involved? There's no time like the present! Whether you're a BAME employee network, you have a Black women's reading group, or you're an ACS, this is the primetime to widen your audience and build your base!
