Snap Inc., the parent company of Snapchat, has just announced the next cohort of their 523 Content Accelerator. This program was created to help content companies and creators from underrepresented communities succeed within the industry. The creators of Snapchat founded the app to be a space where others could authentically be themselves. This program is an extension of that in order to create a “content ecosystem” that better reflects the diversity within the community. GLAAD has partnered with Snap inc. before, to help them publish their ACT diversity report in tech. A GLAAD Media Institute alumni, Alec Fischer, was among those selected as part of the 2023 cohort. His company, Fischr Media, is dedicated to telling authentic, Midwestern stories and having those stories shared with national and global audiences.
