The “I AM Project” is a national program that engages members, chapters and eSTEAM students in a way that highlights the broad spectrum of who we are and the contributions we make to communities we live in as well as the company we serve.
How to participate:
Each chapter/individual will provide a video 30 seconds or less in length describing themselves: Who they are; where they were born, education level, organizational role, company title, family lives, etc….The format will be similar to the sample below:
I am the child of Barbara and Walt
I am living in California
I am a wife and mother of two
I am a grandmother of four
I am a university graduate with a degree in marketing
I am a 38-year employee of AT&T
I am an area manager in regulatory & external affairs
I am Sandra Brown
AND I am The NETwork
Videos must be shot with members in appropriate surrounding and professional attire.
Each submission will begin with “I am… or We are…” and conclude with the phrase: “I am or We are, The NETwork”.
Each participant must sign and submit a media release form.
Submitter should include a photo and their signed media release form with video.
Videos should be no longer than 30 seconds in length. Videos are subject to modification.

In February during the 2018 Black History Month, the Heritage Team will continue working on capturing your I AM videos. We will feature you, our members, in 30 second videos that pay homage to the good folks from The NETwork or our predecessor organizations that inspired you to join and be active.
Throughout February, your videos will be played on our website and social media sites.

We have also designed a special edition Black History Month shirt for 2018. It is available for purchase now. Let’s all wear these custom shirts proudly on February 28 as we close out the month and celebrate 28 Days of I AM.
Why: To document our organization’s history and creatively present ourselves to our community
How: In a thirty second video, chapters/individuals will honor the broad spectrum of who we are and the contributions we make to community and company. The Heritage committee will gather a cross section of the best videos, combine them to create a video loop that will be played throughout the 2017 ERG Conference in Dallas.
