Diversity and inclusion are at the core of Teachable’s values. Along with this, we believe we must continually work to support these efforts, foster a safe space for our employees and creators, and honor these values we hold dear—and do so year round. In honor of Black History Month, we want to take a moment to celebrate Black creators and leaders in the entrepreneurial space. So, all month we will be highlighting and celebrating Black voices.
To help you stay up-to-date of what we have coming up, we created this free Trello board of resources. Here you’ll find a selection of creators, links, events, and more.
First, you’ll see a curated list of Black creators with links to their websites, courses, social media handles, and more. Get a preview of this lineup below.
Black creators to know—sneak peek
Glo Atanmo is a world traveler, creator, entrepreneur, and host of the podcast “The Glo Show.” Her Instagram is rich with confidence-building quips, creator affirmations and resources, and peeks into her life. Her course, Blog Like a Boss 4.0, showcases her deep knowledge of content creation, blogging, monetization, and branding. Notably, it is a must for anyone looking to break into the space.
UK-based graphic designer Brian Kofi Hollingsworth is a must-know for all marketers and creators—whether you’re in the design field or not. His school, The BKH Academy, is a go to for those wishing to understand and build Instagram skills. From courses that help create an Instagram stories strategy to expanding your social reach, this is knowledge not to be missed.
With this wealth of knowledge from these exceptional online creators, get inspired and create your own. We have a free “course idea worksheet” to help you get started.
If you’re not already following NYT bestselling author Luvvie Ajayi Jones, you should be. Luvvie is a blogging veteran, media and communications expert, seasoned speaker, and most importantly, a teacher. Because of that, her desire to empower others led her to launch The Do-Better Academy. As a matter of fact, she features two stellar courses on public speaking.
Read, listen, and learn
Also, in our resource guide are hand-selected articles and essays about Black History Month, the legacy of Black leaders and educators, Black entrepreneurs and thought leaders, and so much more. To accompany our reading guide, we’ve added a selection of podcasts our team at Teachable HQ can’t get enough of.
