Owner, The Culturist Union
After earning a BFA in Theatre Arts Administration and Management from Howard University, Elbi Elm discovered her passion for managing creative spaces, using self-expression as an agent of change, and community-building. Inspired by the Madam C.J. Walker Hair Culturists Union of America, Elbi founded The Culturist Union to equip creators with the necessary support, awareness, and confidence to improve the quality of their craft and the state of their community.
She brings over 15 years of leadership to the table, including nine years in the U.S. Air Force. She’s served as the diversity marketing advisor and board member for several non-profits and has participated in numerous panels on the subjects of diversity, equity, and inclusion. Elbi won best pitch of Savannah SCORE’s 2019 BizPitch competition, was selected for the American Express “100 for 100” program and has been featured in several local and national publications.
