Newsletter Vol 0 No 2

Launch Date: December 7th, 2020

This month, the VT PoC board has been hard at work building our website: At the site, you can get a better insight into our vision for the Network, learn more about the team behind the scenes, the programs we’re working on, and past volumes of our newsletters. 

In the future, this website will be a hub for mentorship and internship opportunities, building professional networks and ongoing career advancement, promotion career opportunities and businesses operated by BIPOC in VT, and more!

Businesses and People

Born and raised in NYC, Isora Lithgow owns and operates Isora Lithgow Creations LLC. After spending a summer in VT with The Nature Conservancy’s LEAF Program and visiting UVM through her high school, she selected UVM and now feels, to some extent, that this is her second home base. Her foray into photography began in NYC, where she was part of the NYC Salt Photography Program that led to photography shows, scholarship, and even sales of her work.

We asked her about her experience as an BIPOC entrepreneur in Vermont.
