From her early start engaging with media, CMC, LLC founder and Chief Considerations Officer, Ava Montgomery developed a multi-faceted lens for media analysis. She has used her keenness for training and media literacy, in scholarly pursuits and as a mechanism to advocate for accurate representations and accurate narratives in discourses-not only in media but in everyday conversations.
Ava is well aware of the powerful influence media can have on public discourses and public policies. As well, she is intimately knowledgeable of how media can be created to negatively or positively influence self-esteem development in adults and children of all persuasions.
Thus, she believes that media literacy is a social justice issue and that conscious media literacy is a life-skill.
CMC, LLC's mission is to create conscious content and media and to help our clients create media/content that demonstrates Conscious-Concern© in construction. She believes being consciously concerned for accuracy of narratives and representations in media (and speech content) is the best way to educate and elevate discourses so they demonstrate conscious leadership and integrity.
When creating or helping our clients to create Conscious Media, Ava will focus her analytical lenses on achieving--among other considerations--the following Six Spheres of Consideration for content which demonstrate Conscious-Concern©:
1. Considerations of Accuracy in Narratives and potential intersectionality with other spheres.
2. Considerations of Accuracy in Representations and potential intersectionality with other spheres.
3. Culturally -Competent Considerations and potential intersectionality with other spheres.
4. Consideration for Media Justice given to issues of Social Injustice and potential intersectionality with other spheres.
5. Linguistic Considerations and potential intersectionality with other spheres.
6. Considerations for accuracy in Gender narratives and representation and potential intersectionality with other spheres.
*Conscious-Concern© is a term that describes a specific type of lens for media analysis and content creation which is defined in the guide: Listen-In! Watch-Out! Word-Up!
