Black History Month is a time of celebration and education. This month, Pinterest will showcase Black Excellence across categories including fashion and beauty, home, food and travel.
We’re building the world’s inspiration company by empowering diverse voices and ideas with employees, on our platform, and within the broader community. This month, Pinterest will showcase Black creators and their talented contributions across our platform. Working with our internal employee resource group, Blackboard, we’ve partnered with creators like LaToya Lanice, Josiane Konaté and Kaya Marriott and prominent Black leaders to offer ways to get inspired by Black culture and ideas to strengthen allyship within communities. On social, we'll be highlighting creators like lifestyle creator Hannah Bronfman, celeb makeup artist Kilprity and mother daughter fashion duo fashNcurious.
To celebrate Black creators and the talented contributions of Black voices every day, we’re hosting the Pinterest Creators Presents: Black Gold digital speaking event on February 24th. The event will spotlight creatives and role models through a line-up of compelling conversations about Black Excellence and owning your space in a digital world. You can register for the event, here.
“We are delighted to host our first Pinterest Creators Presents: Black Gold event in the US to celebrate Black excellence in the digital space. Pinterest is committed to being a positive, inclusive space where Black creators, business owners and Pinners alike, can grow their audience and inspire everyone to build a life they love. We are so excited to share this event with our creator community as we elevate Black voices and champion the amazing content you continue to make.” - Alexandra Nikolajev, Global Creator Inclusion Lead
