Joy, Passion and Power

Our Vision

To see the UK's Black women celebrated on stages, in boardrooms and anywhere it counts, proudly taking up space and being recognised for our expertise. 

About Us Anchor

Our Purpose

To use collective power to amplify the amazing work of Black female talent

in the advertising, marketing, media and communications industries

by creating a platform for Black women to be visible, feel supported and thrive.

Who Is It For?

Join Our Table was born at Cannes Lions 2022 when our founding sisters

recognised the lack of Black British women at the festival

Our sisterhood launches, shining a light on the phenomenal work of Black women across the industry. Our first initiative “The Spotlight” celebrates 100 inspirational change-makers.

By coming together to drive visibility and access, we aim to provide the equity our sisters deserve in the communications industry.

We welcome allies equally committed to tangible action and empowerment.
