Zaka is a learning and community platform for immigrants to gain career advancement knowledge, mentorship and a network of top immigrant leaders to succeed in their careers.
As three immigrants who moved to the United States at a young age and had to figure out how to create our version of the “American Dream” through trial and error, all while immersing into American culture and maintaining our own culture, a clear path towards attaining our professional and person vision was unclear.
Doing well in school, getting into a great college, getting a good job and making an honest living would not be enough for us to thrive in this world or position us to use our talents and capabilities to attain our dream, a reality for all immigrants who have been underserved, marginalized and adversely affected.
Greg Maurice was born and raised in Haiti before moving to Brooklyn at the age of 13. Greg started his career working in digital media for ICR INC, a top 10 Investor Relations firm. He served as the Director of Marketing at eOne within the Black vertical for 5 years and launched their Black division Currently, he is the Director of Acquisitions at Screen Media Ventures where he is focused on highlighting the stories of underrepresented communities.
Although Greg has had a successful career, the challenges he experienced in creating his professional path through trial and error was met with challenges of unfair treatment, uncertainty in how to thrive in corporate America or advocate for his needs, a reality most first and second generation immigrants face. Greg’s vision for Zaka is to create the future leaders of the world by providing first and second generation immigrants with the blueprint for success through actionable content, education, and community.
