Rise Together Media was born out of the idea that its meaning is a verb, a noun, an adjective, and more importantly, a belief system that provides unity and community to creatives and visionaries, novices and experts, who believe that diversity and inclusion are more than mere buzz words.
We are devoted to the misfits, the courageous, the weirdos, the freak flag flyers, the ones who rebel against oppression and rise in the name of togetherness. We want to see women, LGBTQ and BIPOC communities thrive in every way, in all aspects of media from film and television, to tech and hospitality, art and design.
We can't falter in the belief that together we are stronger.
RTM was brought to life when pieces of a larger puzzle came together at a time in history when divisiveness became too loud—and we refuse to subscribe to that. We are a community steeped in raising others up. We believe that the tide becomes undeniably strong when those who have been asked to sit down, rise and stand up together.
We align ourselves with—and work with—brands, people, companies, and visionaries that subscribe to the ideology that equality is the backbone of true progress and evolution. And we're big fans of evolving.
If you want to change the narrative, you have to just change the f*n narrative.
Let's do that.
RTM is the manifestation of a lifelong dream to unite women, LGBTQ, LatinX and BIPOC creatives, championing progress and equity in every way.

We want our company to represent diversity in the real world. That said, we champion women, especially women of color + LGBT because the lack of representation has gone on far too long.
We want to see more female and female identifying faces in all aspects of media.
We strive to make this the new normal.
