YOUR TANGO - Mar 9 - Racial discrimination against Black women plays out in every aspect of life, even in online dating. CarpeDM, a dating community created by and for professional Black women is here to change the dating landscape. For founder Naza Shelley, an attorney-turned-entrepreneur, CarpeDM is more than just a business venture. It was an idea born from need. "Statistically, we get less engagement on dating apps," says Shelley. "Next to Asian men, Black women are considered to be the least desirable to date by other ethnic groups." As well as getting matches through the app's algorithm, women can connect with matchmakers who provide highly selected matches and plenty of relationship guidance. CarpeDM is available to download now on iOS - Android coming soon - with matchmaking expected to take place by summer 2021.
