Hopefully we covered most of your questions here. Please read through this FAQ before reaching out—we may already have an answer for you!

Do I have to be in NYC to sign up?

No! This year we are doing things a bit differently. We will have one section of mentors and mentees local to NYC and one section that will be participating in digital mentorship.

What does “women of color “mean?

Generally speaking, it’s any woman who doesn’t identify as “white.”

Will you be coming to my city?

Soon, but we need your help! If you’re interested in starting a chapter in your city, reach out here:

What does “creative” mean?

For Women Who Create, “creative” means working in or having interest in one of these creative fields: art, advertising, music, tech, and fashion. We’re focusing on these fields so we can help women of color in our professional community as much as possible.

How do I know if I’m qualified to be a mentor?

If you’re working in a creative field, you have something to give back! (Trust us.)

Can I apply if I’ve already been a mentor/mentee?

Yes! You can apply as many times as you’d like.

I’m not a woman of color, but would love to volunteer and/or be involved. What can I do to help?

Thank you so much for your support! We truly value you as an ally, so please know that! You can help spread the word by sharing our posts, telling a woman of color about our program, and sending us positive vibes.

We’d love to help sponsor Women Who Create by offering our space for an event or providing funding. How can we get in touch?
