Project Description

WomenWerk is a women’s empowerment non-profit founded in 2013 and based in New York City. Our mission is to connect and celebrate women of color realize their personal and professional goals. We leverage the robust power of women by: (1) building intersectional community to advocate for gender equity (policy, leadership, representation), (2) curating networking and professional development (skills, equal pay, peer mentorship, cross-sector education) and (3) networking trainings on: career education, civic engagement, and resources for entrepreneurs. 

 

Learn more about our impact and community here. This campaign will allow our non-profit to stay afloat to implement critical 2020 priorities including enhancing women of color to vote and trainings to empower women of color to company toxic culture in the workplace.

 

WomenWerk has an email membership list of 5,500 members and developed robust programs benefiting women based in the tri-state area. Our impact has been recognized by BlogHer, Essence Festival, the New York City Mayor, SXSW, the Manhattan Borough President, Walkers Legacy Foundation, and NYC City Council members across all five boroughs for their impact of over 5,000 women and girls in its first five years. Our work has reached recognition at The White House, Essence Festival, BlogHer, Walkers Legacy, The National Urban League and more. In addition, our national conferences and local media has led to past partnerships with Google, Microsoft, Lyft, WeWork, Columbia University, New York University, and General Assembly.
