What is ECCII?

The Emerging Content Creators Inclusion Initiative (ECCII) is a yearlong initiative geared towards emerging artists from underrepresented communities who lack the resources and relationships to kickstart their careers in the entertainment industry. Through the ECCII, NALIP offers scholarships and mentorship opportunities during its major programs and events.

This initiative targets creators and emerging executive professionals at the start of their careers, whether they are fresh out of college or are in the midst of a career change, the goal is to ensure that they are given the opportunity to connect with peers and mentors. Making connections with other emerging leaders are often the most crucial steps an emerging creator can take- those coming up with you will often be your biggest advocates. Additionally, mentors help provide tips and resources on how they might be able to continue their upward trajectory . 

For all of our major events, our team selects a variety of emerging professionals to join our events on full scholarship. They receive a cultivated agenda based on their selected track, a curated workshop, and mentorship session. 

NALIP is honored to meet so many amazing Emerging Content Creators each year and is excited to continue to be a part of their journey.
