Nexio Launches Groundbreaking Networking App for Black Professionals

Nexio Launches Groundbreaking Networking App for Black Professionals

Designed to Meet the Business Needs of the Global Black Community, Nexio Fosters Professional and Personal Peer-to-Peer Engagement

PR Newswire

LONDON, July 8, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The phrase "Black employment" shows a breathtaking number of articles, blogs, think-pieces, and research underscoring the staggering barriers and disparities Black people face in the global job market.

With the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, which alone triggered the U.S. unemployment rate to a decline unseen since "The Great Depression", Black people around the world have been disproportionately impacted by the economic fallout from the virus.

According to the U.K.'s House of Commons Library1, the unemployment rate of people BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) backgrounds increased versus the first quarter of 2020, from 5.8% to 6.3%, as the unemployment rate for people from White backgrounds moved closer to historic low levels.

In the U.S., while 2.5 million jobs were added back in May, Black unemployment rose to 16.8%, up 0.1% since April.

As thousands of rallies take place around the world, with millions uniting against economic, social, and racial injustices, #BlackLivesMatter has shone a spotlight on the grim reality Black people face every day in virtually all aspects of their lives.

To help reverse the tide of inequality and foster relationships with like-minded professionals, Nexio is a revolutionary company whose innovative app advances career opportunities for and cultivates connections between Black entrepreneurs and professionals.

Something the black people can finally cheer about

Understanding the disadvantages Black people face finding prospects that lead to career advancement, Nexio provides a digital infrastructure designed to support and inspire Black professionals.

Nexio is a virtual community where black people can organize their own events, create and join "groups" that are perfectly tailored to them. Plus, Nexio delivers the latest news from around the world customized to their interests. And, with Nexio's exclusive events, members can always continue the conversation offline. This is the first of its kind and it is already gaining a lot of traction amongst the black community.

With key features like its free mobile app (available on iOS and Android), chat, groups, news, and events, Nexio is the next generation of digital networking for the Black community.

An Evening of Opportunities

In anticipation of its upcoming launch, Nexio announced their arrival as the disruptors in the social media industry, with a premier event in London last fall. Featuring live performances and presentations from industry leaders and motivational speakers, Nexio organized an unprecedented evening of networking, allowing professionals to collaborate and create new businesses opportunities and partnerships.

Break Down Professional Barriers with Nexio

With the ability to seize the chance to engage with the right people, millions around the world can now take control of their professional destinies. They can now connect with people with similar roles, industries and interests.
