The Business of Fashion announces the Next-Generation Black Journalists Fellowship, a six-month, part-time, paid reporting and writing program designed to empower up-and-coming Black journalists of any age.
Black culture has an outsized influence on the fashion and beauty businesses, not only in designing the products, images and silhouettes that influence the consumer at large, but also setting trends and validating status symbols that define a cultural moment. But behind-the-scenes, Black professionals are underrepresented and often disenfranchised, especially in positions of power and ownership on both the creative and business sides of the industry. This problem extends to the media outlets that cover the sector.
We seek a fellow to work closely with the BoF editorial team to report and write about the fashion and beauty industries and tackle stories that bring a new perspective to our industry audience. Are you a retail worker with a passion for writing? Or a nurse who wants to bring your science education to writing about beauty products? This opportunity could be right for you.
Black writers from any country are eligible to apply. Applicants are welcome to continue working full or part-time in other parts of the fashion industry, or in any other sectors, during the fellowship. University education is not required, nor is a formal resume.
