Sterkte Media is a non-profit organization dedicated to curating Canadian creative stories quarterly.
While some of us at Stertke Media hold marginalized identities, our small team is predominantly white and we recognize the privileges that carry over into the work we do daily. As such, it is our responsibility to leverage that privilege to help move this industry towards equitability by promoting and supporting BIPOC and LGBTQ2S+ and marginalized members of our community.
In our spaces and in making community through Stertke Media, we have no tolerance for racism, homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia, or ideologies that are against our belief that all human beings deserve equal rights. We recognize that actions speak louder than any statement we could make. All industries can take action to ensure equity, inclusion and anti-racism in their operations. When we came together to form Sterkte Media we principally acknowledged that we would be a positive forum for BIPOC and LGBQT2S+ lived experiences and stories. That we would stand in solidarity to raise and elevate their voices.This is our responsibility.
