While making a commercial for the new 2020 Ford Escape, Ford invited two awesome nonprofit organizations to get a behind-the-scenes look at all that goes into the collaborative process. The organizations, Made In Her Image, which empowers girls of color in filmmaking, and Girls Make Beats, which does the same for girls in the music industry, got the chance to shadow Ford's "Built Phenomanally" campaign. It's so important to encourage creativity and inspiration at a young age, and this empowering on-set experience is doing exactly that.

You can get more information on Made In Her Image's upcoming events on their Facebook page.

Made In Her Image Is Back, And Teaming Up With The Film 'Little'

We recently featured Made In Her Image on RTM, the non-profit organization that empowers young women of color to achieve their dreams of success in the world of filmmaking. The program teaches and helps refine a range of skills — including writing, acting, producing, directing, storyboarding, and more. Made In Her Image is now teaming up with the cast and crew of the new film "Little", featuring Marsai Martin. Not only does Marsai play one of the lead roles, but she is also one of the film's executive producers and the youngest producer in Hollywood at the age of just 14. We love to see young women, and young people in general, reach their goals in life! "Little" hits theaters April 12th! View Now
