The Emerging Content Creators Inclusion Initiative targets creators and emerging executive professionals, whether fresh out of college or amid a career change, at the start of their careers. The goal is to ensure that they are given the opportunity to connect with peers and mentors. Making connections with other emerging leaders is often the most crucial step an emerging creator can take- those coming up with you will often be your biggest advocates. Additionally, mentors help provide tips and resources on how they might be able to continue their upward trajectory.
