Your digital library for easily accessing tools and resources that help you navigate your life as a diverse professional.
Your culture plays an integral role in what you do and how you do it. In our search to curate helpful tools and resources for diverse professionals, we’ve discovered that many tools and resources are already available to you in your own communities. But who has time to dig for them?
Whether it’s finding accelerators that will invest in your startup, sharing skill-building platforms with your mentees, or joining a support community, Resources by bizqit bridges the gap between you and the resources you need to pursue your passions.
And the best part? We provide a virtual library where you don’t have to check your culture at the door. Many of our tools and resources are created by women and minorities for women and minorities.
So spend less of your time digging for support, inspiration, communities, programs, events and apps, and more time building your professional lifestyle from your cultural lens.
We curate suggested tools and resources to ensure that each one is vetted and valuable to you and your village. Review the guidelines below to increase the chances of your tool or resource getting added to the library.
Resources we swerve (for now)
E-commerce. Certain platforms like fashion stores and natural hair blogs aren’t currently accepted in the Resources library. If you own a Resource that also has an e-commerce channel, the e-commerce channel should not be the main focus of your Resource. For example, a health and wellness platform for minority women that also sells t-shirts may still be published. We will announce opportunities for e-commerce platforms at a later date.
Business Services. Many of our tools and resources do offer paid business services, so there are exceptions. These will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. We will announce opportunities for business services at a later date.
Job Postings. We currently don't accept job postings; however, we may accept entries that lead you to job search sites, including Jopwell, HBCU to Startup, The Muse and LEVO. We're more interested in creating a digital environment that fosters resource discovery, from podcasts to people. We hope that facilitating relationships and connections will naturally lead you to find the jobs and craft the lifestyle you imagine. We will announce opportunities for job postings at a later date.
Resources we love
Educational. Resources that educate, motivate, inform and support career-minded women and minority communities. This may include, but is not limited to: online learning platforms, skill-building platforms.
Professional. Resources that appeal to diverse professionals in the following industries: Arts, Design, Communications, Marketing, STEM, Politics + Government. These may include, but are not limited to: professional organizations and associations relevant to diverse professionals.
Multi-format. The more formats or channels a resource has, the better. Because we're all about easy access, resources with multiple platforms means it's easier for diverse professionals to find the tools and resources they need. For example, a resource that has a blog, podcast and community is ideal, although not required.
To view resources that have been submitted by the community, simply click on the filter dropdown menu, and select 'Pending Resources' to see the latest suggested Resources.
Note: To help maintain the focus and integrity of the library, we ultimately reserve the right to determine which Resources will be published.
