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?
Yes...for now! Our team is currently based in NYC, so we’re starting our community here so women of color can have the benefit of connecting with each other IRL. But don’t worry–we have plans to expand to other cities in the future. If you’d like to start a chapter in your city, drop us a message here: firstname.lastname@example.org.
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: email@example.com.
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.)
Should I sign up to be a mentor or mentee?
If you’re currently enrolled in college and working towards your dream job, apply to be a mentee.
If you’re freelancing or have a full-time job, this is your chance to give back! Apply to be a mentor.

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