Nneka Onuorah

Nneka Onuorah started her career at Viacom by being dubbed the "Super-Intern" at BET Networks by The New-York Times in an article "Dancer at Heart CEO in the Making". Only three months after beginning her internship with Stephen Hill President of Programming, Nneka got hired for being innovative and forward thinking. After closely studying the interdepartmental operations of the network, Nneka saw a void in the connection between the company and its Millennials. In an attempt to fill that void, Nneka created the "Junior Executive Board" which is an internal resource group that is designated to give an executive from each department a mentee that actively studies the millennial patterns of the demographic. After moving her way up from Intern, to coordinator, to producer Nneka used her television experience and personal story to create her very first film "The Same Difference", a documentary about lesbians who discriminate against other lesbians based on gender roles. Which is playing in main stream theaters like AMC as well as winning the audience award for Best Documentary in HBO's Newfest film festival selling out theaters in a record time of two minutes. With press outlets like Huffington Post, Black Enterprise, NBC, Fox News, Cosmopolitan, and more endorsing the film Nneka is on a sure path to diversifying the stories told in mainstream media. Nneka for the past 5 years has been an Associate Producer on the Black Girls Rock Awards. She is also the founder of the "We are All Women Campaign" a campaign to stop the injustice in the Black LGBT Women Community. She has dedicated her life to making the invisible visible and giving a voice to the voiceless. (9/16)
