Each member of I.M.P.A.C.T will have the opportunity to join a committee and subcommittee to help advocate on behalf of the organization. The representation of our Board of Directors means that I.M.P.A.C.T is always TRUTHFULLY representing those of Afro-descent and who identify as Black producers!
Members will also have the chance to work directly on specific industry initiatives through our committees and subcommittees. In addition, I.M.P.A.C.T will partner with other marginalized organizations in order to provide members with access to broadcasters, production equipment, as well as legal, accounting, production and post-production services. I.M.P.A.C.T will also create and host workshops, panel discussions, industry events, professional training and anti-oppression/anti-racism training.
I.M.P.A.C.T's upcoming career trajectory programs will connect our members with other marginalized and like-minded organizations in order to support and nurture the careers of the next crop of producers of Afro-descent and that identify as a Black person. By tapping into the wealth of Canadian Black mentors that already exist and pairing them with the next class of Afro-descent and those who identify as Black producers of all intersectional identities, I.M.P.A.C.T will ensure the baton is passed in a smooth way to ensure a furious new era of Black Excellence is ushered in.
