Mogul Official Statement
In light of recent events in Minnesota, please read Mogul’s official statement:
“Mogul stands with the black community and people of color, and recognizes that until they can truly live without fear, silence is simply not an option.
We must hold ourselves accountable and interrupt the cycle of systemic racism that exists in our world through our daily actions and in the words we choose. We must seek to understand and strive for justice and respect, and to make each day less racist than the one before.
Mogul continues to remain committed to create more transparency, inclusion and diversity in storytelling!”
Next month we will be featuring Mogul team member, Lyriq Bent, as a special guest on Mogul Live. Lyriq will speaking about his career and experience, and what he feels is missing in the industry. This will be an incredibly timely event for our community and we’re ecstatic to have Lyriq speak about his experiences as a Canadian BIPOC creator.
