Empowering Black Professionals with BlackCreateConnect & Championing DEI x Alicia Richardson | S5 Ep. 4

Adrian speaks to Alicia Richardson, the founder of BlackCreateConnect, a platform that began as a WhatsApp group in 2020 to support black professionals. The group quickly grew as opportunities and connections were created within it. Alicia recognised the demand from companies to connect with black professionals and decided to create a platform that would facilitate these organic connections. Black Create Connect now offers events, a job board, and a podcast for companies to advertise and partner with.

Alicia acts as a mediator between the black community and companies, listening to feedback and advocating for the needs and wants of black professionals and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion through her platform. She aims to provide meaningful opportunities and support for black professionals in their career journeys.
