  • Can I help the 600 Black Women mission?
    Yes! The most impactful ways to help us achieve the 600 Black Women mission are to sponsor, hire, connect, and amplify. - Sponsor : We accept sponsorship from partners which allows our group to connect, train, and organize. This funding makes events like The Camera Cookout possible for years to come. - Hire : When you are crewing up, consider adding a new member to your team, especially if your team lacks diversity. Even if you are not well funded you might have a great training opportunity for someone looking to make the leap into a new role or shadow someone with experience. - Connect: Partners, media outlets, brands, and more can be fantastic collaborators for 6BW, please consider introducing us to a group you know. - Amplify: We are on social and you should like, follow, share, and engage with us, we would love to get to know you!
