ONE School for Black Creatives: A (Fourth) Gift in Your Name
As we step into the promise of a New Year, and recognize the Birthday of Martin Luther King Jr., C&G Partners is delighted to share that we have made a donation to ONE School for a fourth year on behalf of our clients, collaborators, and staff. ONE School is a free tutorial program nurturing the next generation of Black creatives by actively working to reduce barriers to entry in the industry. This gift is a reaffirmation of our belief that fostering innovation within the creative community goes hand in hand with promoting diversity.
ONE School provides mentorship, networking, and an intensive tutorial-based portfolio-development program for aspiring Black creatives. Since its inception in 2020, the intensive 16-week program has graduated 200 students, 59% of whom are female-identifying, and boasts a 72% hiring rate at top-tier agencies and brands. In 2023, the program made huge strides as alums became mentors in the program, expanding its support network and adding a teaching assistant to the team.
C&G Partners is proud to be original charter supporters for this remarkable organization, alongside firms like Google, Spotify, and Adobe, helping to positively impact the lives and careers of aspiring Black creatives. See the latest class of ONE School graduates here.
We extend our sincere gratitude for your continued partnership. Your collaboration with C&G Partners is instrumental in making this donation possible. Here’s to another year of shared success!
