Personify the Core Values

These four Core Values are the foundation of Blavity’s culture and identity and set the tone for our interactions with each other, partners, and clients:


Love of the Community 

We are committed to supporting and uplifting Black culture and creating an inclusive workplace where all individuals are valued and supported. We actively seek out opportunities to partner with minority-owned businesses and support Black-led initiatives.


Transparency and Communication 

We are dedicated to creating a culture of transparency and communication that builds trust and fosters accountability, and we encourage open and constructive dialogue at all levels of the organization. 


Collective Responsibility

By taking collective responsibility, we create a culture of accountability where each individual is empowered to take ownership of their work and to contribute to the success of the team. 


Fail Fast

We test our ideas quickly and without fear of failure, so that every misstep is a learning opportunity. By failing fast, we are able to course correct quickly and achieve our goals of innovation and growth more efficiently.

Q2 Core Value Awardees

Ronke Bolutayo

Collective Responsibility

Ronke is always a reliable resource and partner. When consulted, she displays a sense of shared responsibility for the outcome of tasks and initiatives, for problem-solving, and protecting the company. Ronke is also proactive in flagging areas of concern from a compliance perspective — with a focus on collaboration and partnership. She is very thorough in her work and quick to provide clear and relevant guidance. Ronke has helped tighten up processes that better-position Blavity to be a compliant and well-operated company. It has been a pleasure working with her, as she is an invaluable contributor to our team's success!

Emily Anderson

Fail Fast

When we found out we didn’t qualify to promote a brand through an approved affiliate partner, Emily acted quickly with transparency to communicate with the affiliate platform and alert editorial. After she took over content curation and emails, she found a way to navigate the process and obtain assets by herself for a client contracted banner ad without the benefit of a staff member familiar with this task. Through identifying opportunities to cross-promote content between brands and inactive lists, she has been able to grow several brands/ list sizes in a short period of time — by over 100K subscribers.

Lauren Temple

Love of the Community

Lauren exudes love and support for the community through her service work and passion for uplifting unheard voices, whether by helping directly, suggesting talented individuals for Blavity projects, or educating colleagues on trends and news. She is empathetic to those around her and moves with full force to reach objectives, making sure everyone feels heard and supported. Lauren is passionate and persistent about the things she cares about and yet patient. She has a business of her own and continues to support local businesses around Long Beach and beyond, including her project uplifting the voices of Black and Brown mothers.

Lilian Ogbuefi (Lily)

Transparency and Communication

Lily takes responsibility for her actions and outcomes as well as takes the initiative to proactively seek solutions to overcome challenges. She has played a pivotal role in implementing transparent processes and communication channels, so the team feels comfortable expressing their thoughts, concerns, and questions. She also demonstrates pride in her work through her consistent delivery of high-quality results and goes above and beyond, making a positive impact on projects. Lily contributes to the success of the team by actively collaborating. She also provides encouragement, recognition, and support that boost morale and motivate team members to excel.
