June 2020 brought a watershed moment in American history. The murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor highlighted the tragic level of racism that still exists in this country.
As a business that serves thousands of Black creators, we realized that we needed to do more to contribute to the campaign against racism.
Part of the plan we created was to launch a Black Creator Council to amplify Black voices in the Podia community.
Podia’s Black Creator Council exists to ensure that Podia is serving Black creators with its product, messaging, and content. The Council is comprised of Black Podia customers who are asked for feedback on new and ongoing initiatives, messaging, and content, to help guide us in our mission to become better allies, both within the company and in the larger community.
Our goal is that the Black Creator Council can make meaningful contributions to the Black community, both by supporting existing creators and empowering new ones.
