Mielle Organics recently announced the roll out of its inaugural Global Certificate Program. The program is in partnership with Rutgers University and the Newark Business Hub. Mielle Organics will allocate part of their $1 Million More Than A Strand Fund to cover the tuition and start-up costs for 60 2021 program applicants. This initiative is part of the brand’s promise to provide opportunities for entrepreneurship and education in the community. Mielle also announced that actress and venture capitalist Keshia Knight Pulliam will serve as its new Global Education Ambassador. This announcement comes as the company celebrates its seven-year anniversary.
How Mielle Organics is providing opportunities
For the company’s founder and CEO, Monique Rodriguez, choosing Keshia Knight Pulliam as Mielle’s Global Education ambassador was a must.
“We chose Keshia Knight Pulliam as our new Global Education Ambassador because of her passion for providing opportunities for mentorship, education and venture capital for Black women,” said Rodriguez.
“It’s incredible to work with Mielle Organics to bring new education and venture capital opportunities to Black women worldwide,” said Global Ambassador Keshia Knight Pulliam. “It’s amazing to partner with a company that has so much mutual synergy when it comes to sewing into our community. I’m honored to celebrate their seven-year anniversary.”
