“We cannot afford to lose our voices, said Love. There is much work to do to break the stereotypical boxes that mainstream has stuffed us in. Boardroom conversations are evident in the way we are portrayed from advertising to government and from entertainment to education.” It is no secret that historically, minority women must work harder for less pay and appreciation than their male counterparts.
BWIR encourages women to keep going toward their dreams to be of useful service to the communities they live and work in. Women demonstrate enormous capabilities every day and BWIR captures successes both large and small. BWIR promotes their innovation, leadership, creativity, personal growth, and extraordinary talent.
“We are the voice of encouragement, appreciation, connection, and acceptance that we rarely saw in the industry before now. I can’t think of a better way to share my love for the industry than to highlight everything that we are doing right,” Love added.
As a special feature, industry professionals participate in the Black Women In Radio Conversation Docu-Series allows colleagues, aspiring radio and digital professionals to celebrate radio life. The production captures personal reflections, influences, inspirations, and most memorable experiences from some of the most popular and some of the most underestimated women in the industry.
Supa Cindy, host of “The Afternoon Get Down” on Miami’s 99 Jamz and Love and Hip Hop star said, “If it were not for BWIR, I would not have known that many of her radio sisters ever existed.” Supa Cindy took time out of her busy schedule signing a megadeal with Trina during the release of her “Queens Don’t Compete” Project to participate in the docu-series and encourage viewers to “command respect from others by treating
them the way you want to be treated.”
