I think it is. I’m hoping that the same way white men have their old boys network we can establish a system of awareness of each other especially when there’s one or two of us at every agency.

Networking is very important in general. If you mean networking with POC. Of course. I’m aware that people try to force networking. Sometimes it’s just starting conversations... I love seeing representation where it matters to get more POC so that’s why I network to make myself available to all industries where I can.

I guess I’m asking if networking in general is more important as a POC, because it may help open doors that may automatically open or open more easily for white folks

OP white men network all the time. Why do you think they have this system 😉?
