The Creative Collective NYC and Acast announced the winner of their ‘For The Culture Podcast PitchFest is Joi Louviere who won for her proposal for Werk Stories, a podcast about the experiences of women of color in the workplace.

The podcast pitch competition took place on June 13, 2021 at this year’s CultureCon At Home event.

The Creative Collective NYC’s annual conference, CultureCon, hosted break-out rooms, one-on-one chats, mentorship office hours, and skill-building workshops with a lineup that included Michael B. Jordan, Chloe x Halle, Regina Hall, and Ziwe.

The contest invited creatives to submit proposals for podcast ideas to win a laptop, a microphone, free podcast hosting with Acast for one year, audio editing software, and office hours with an Acast team member.

Louviere says of her pitch “Werk Stories is a home for women of color to share their workplace experiences. Unfiltered, this space lends itself as a supportive community for the shocking realities of melanated employees everywhere.”
