A fantastic opportunity for mentees to make connections and take a peek behind the curtain at Comcast NBCUniversal
July 13, 2023
This week, our mentees took part in Creative Connections with @NBCUniversal, a virtual networking event hosted by ComcastNBC Unites, where they connected with NBCU professionals to learn about the industry, get advice, and share their own experiences and perspectives.
Mentee Ruby Nicholson said of the event, “The NBCU Creative Connections event was such a knowledgeable experience, and it gave me more insight and more of an inside scoop on the industry. I want to go into the field of journalism and social media for my future career. I am very grateful to have been able to attend.”
Participants not only got an insider’s look at the media landscape, but learned about the individual experiences of people like them.
“I got to connect with some great women who are working to build connections, engage audiences through social media, and develop projects,” Mentee Farah Merchant said. “Hearing about their journeys and work both inspired me but also made me feel comfortable in my own journey. These events affirm to me that everyone takes a different path even if they end up at the same place. I’m so passionate about TV and media, its ability to tell stories and connect people, that I want to work in the sector at any capacity, whether that’s in writing, editing, marketing, and development.”
We’re excited to see how our mentees utilize the knowledge and connections gained in this program!
