This all started on Linkedin after the killing of George Floyd I was sparked by activism during the protest. As a budding DEI Specialist and EdTechie I decided to lend my professional voice to the cause on Linkedin. That's when I realized that my post weren't getting the same reach and exposure as everyone else. I wondered why, was I the only one, and of course WHERE ARE ALL THE BLACK PEOPLE? That's when I started asking around, that's when we realized the algorithm was bias, and I stated that #BlackLinkedin needed to speak out! Before I knew it a whole movement was initiated by Black and Brown professionals on the platform.
After being featured in the New York Times (2020) the hashtag has become a place of community, education, and amplification of professional cultured experiences. I curate authentic cultural content about Black & Brown professionals to create support and garner awareness while encouraging others to do the same.
DO YOUR PART
The movement only works if you do
