Disney Channel sets scholarship in memory of Eunetta T. Boone

The Disney Channel is honoring the memory of writer and producer Eunetta T. Boone, who started her media career at the Baltimore Evening Sun, with a scholarship for aspiring writers. Funding a scholarship in Boone’s name to help other writers get the same kind of opportunity she received seems like an especially apt way to memorialize Boone and insure her legacy.

Program information is available through Walt Disney Television's Creative Talent Development & Inclusion, which connects writers, producers, directors and other members of the creative community to opportunities across Walt Disney Television and beyond, via hiring referrals, events and programs.

GirlBoss CEO Sophia Amoruso Launches LinkedIn-Inspired Platform For Women

Serial entrepreneur, former Nasty Gal CEO and GirlBoss founder Sophia Amoruso is expanding her empire with the launch of a new LinkedIn-esque platform, designed specifically for women, to encourage networking and connecting with likeminded women in various industries.

Your personal profile is a "new take on the tired resume," a mix between your Instagram and LinkedIn that not only details your work experience and accomplishment, but your personality as well by adding your astrological signs and Myers-Brigg personality assessment so other users can get to know the real you.

Years ago when Amoruso launched her own business, she didn't have any mentors to help guide her through the process, which is why she designed the free social networking platform to connect users to real-time mentors. Similar to Reddit, users can ask and answer questions about a range of topics, from business to career.

Think a mix between Instagram and LinkedIn.

How Documentary Filmmaker Erin Lee Carr Brings ‘Radical Empathy’ to True Crime

The documentary filmmaker [Erin Lee Carr] tells TIME about her new movie, true crime’s pull toward darkness and lessons from her famous father.

"My dad [the late New York Times columnist David Carr] said, 'You pick a beat, stick to it and get really good so you’re the person people reach out to for that subject.' I chose disturbing crime stories. It’s not been great for my psyche. But I like darkness, and I like providing a bit of light. And not to sound like a businessperson, but there’s an incredible audience for this."

The Wild Ride at Babe.Net

Babe.net had been humming along, catering to an audience of about 4 million monthly viewers, before it burst through the wall of collective cultural consciousness on a Saturday night ... with both middle fingers up: “I went on a date with Aziz Ansari. It turned into the worst night of my life,” read the instantly viral headline.

Babe launched in 2016 as a vertical of Tab Media, the brainchild of a 29-year-old British journalist named Jack Rivlin. He’d started the site in 2009 while still a 19-year-old student at Cambridge. The Tab, like Babe, relied on content from a network of unpaid student journalists to write a mix of first-person and reported pieces about being young, along with coverage of cultural topics that mattered to 18-to-24-year-olds.

Babe.net — now shuttered — was then at the frothy peak of its existence.

The Aziz Ansari controversy was just the beginning of the trouble for the website.

Why women in tech are being Photoshopped in instead of hired

It’s been five years since tech companies began releasing diversity reports. Not much has changed.

An image of a tech event in which two women CEOs were poorly Photoshopped into a group of 15 men reignited a discussion last week about tech companies’ ongoing failures to meaningfully diversify their workforces.

Companies like Google and Facebook have overturned industries, changed the way we live, and are shaping the future. Yet somehow they haven’t been able to hire a workforce that even remotely represents their customers. Across the tech industry, the share of black and Latinx people in tech and leadership roles is often well below 5 percent, while women typically make up about a fifth to a quarter of those positions. ut five years later, these companies have only become incrementally more diverse.

It’s been five years since tech companies began releasing diversity reports. Not much has changed.

Girlgaze Helps Agencies and Brands Hire Female and Nonbinary Creatives

Girlgaze wants to pave the way for companies to hire female-identifying and nonbinary creative talent from all corners of the globe, launching a digital jobs platform with 200,000 potential employees in 62 countries.

At the very least, brands, agencies and other employers won’t be able to fall back on the old excuse that they don’t know where to look for diverse photographers and artists, according to Girlgaze founder and CEO Amanda de Cadenet, who announced The Girlgaze Network at Cannes on Thursday during a panel called “Smashing Beauty Stereotypes” with Unilever’s Sophie Galvani, TV megaproducer Shonda Rhimes and Getty Images exec Rebecca Swift.

Calling it “a platform aimed at closing the gender gap one job at a time,” de Cadenet said the network can solve “the pipeline challenge that many companies are faced with.”

The network, in beta since spring, officially launched at Cannes.

World Refugee Day: A Night of Music and Storytelling | The Greene Space

The Green Space has an exciting offer for their World Refugee Day performance. It promises to be an exciting opportunity for students looking at ways to combine performance and journalism, and they have arranged the code "CFC" to give them up to 2 free tickets per order. Click the link below to learn more!

"With the refugee crisis hitting staggering and unprecedented levels, we present a night of dynamic storytelling, performance and conversation, all led by refugees and the organizations that represent them. And it’s all happening on World Refugee Day.

Mirza Ramič — a Bosnian refugee and leader of the electronic music outfit Arms and Sleepers— performs original music inspired by his journey and the war thatchanged his family’s life forever. Ahmed Badr also performs work inspired by his escape from Iraq, and the world he left behind.

Together, we'll get to the bottom of pressing questions like: Why are people migrating now more than ever before? How hard is it to gain refugee status? If we accept more refugees, what effect does that have on our economy and communities?"

NYC Mayor's Office Announces $500,000 in Grants for Female Musicians

NYC Mayor's Office Announces $500,000 in Grants for Female Musicians: The fund application will open in July to NYC-based, female-identifying producers, composers, engineers, solo musicians, ensemble bands and orchestras who are not currently signed to a major label. Applicants must also show evidence of a growing fan base, and have played multiple live shows.

Creators who can check those boxes may apply for a grant to fund a new EP, album or video for yet-to-be-released work. Eligible expenses include studio rental, instrument and equipment rental and more. The funds will be handed out to winners in grants of up to $20,000 and administered by the New York Foundation for the Arts.

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio's Office of Media and Entertainment (MOME) is investing $500,000 in grants to local female musicians, an effort to support music made by and for women in a male-dominated industry.

How to Answer ‘Tell Me About Yourself’ in a Job Interview

How to Answer ‘Tell Me About Yourself’ in a Job Interview: “Tell me about yourself” doesn’t mean “give me your complete history from birth until today.” It doesn’t even mean “walk me through your work history.” It means “give me a brief overview of who you are as a professional.” You might wonder why interviewers even ask this question; after all, they have your résumé!

Generally a good answer will summarize where you are in your career, note anything distinctive about how you approach your work, and end with a bit about what you’re looking for next.

There’s a simple way to approach this question.
