Background of the Future is Female Mentorship Program 2021

As a Black and women-owned business that focuses on African markets, it is in C. Moore Media, International Public Relations DNA to be vocal about its support for diversity, especially as it pertains to Black women and girls. In 2020, right in the middle of the global pandemic, when businesses around the world were reeling from the pandemic, and C. Moore Media as a company was trying to navigate the new normal, it wanted to reach back and help African female entrepreneurs and founders of startups during the global chaos that was surrounding us all.

On Africa Day 2020, it launched the inaugural edition of The Future is Female Mentorship Program, a complementary Public Relations (PR) and communications program dedicated exclusively to the business development needs of African female tech founders. African female tech founders are often unsupported and overlooked in the male-dominated tech world, and C. Moore Media wanted to empower and support this group. The Future is Female Mentorship Program provides African female tech founders of early-stage startups with PR and communications expertise, knowledge, and insights to help grow their business and gain more visibility to attract customers, investors, and strategic partnerships.

139 applications were received from 18 countries across Africa for the program’s inaugural launch and selected 12 women who became the Class of 2020. C. Moore Media was blown away by the excitement from the African tech scene and was even more excited when it found out that this initiative made history the first-ever PR and communications mentorship ever launched to help African female tech founders.
