V A L U E S  &  V I S I O N

OF WOC SPACE FOUNDER, HANNAH MARTIN

I believe in the power of entrepreneurship because my family
has been shaped by entrepreneurship for generations.

My abuelos emigrated from Cuba when my abuelo lost his engineering firm to the Communist revolution. My dad was able to provide our family a comfortable upbringing from his own successful engineering firm here in the States. And now, I have found a great sense of purpose and personal freedom through my own business.

Womxn of color face an intersection of oppression--both on the basis of gender and of race.
Traditional workplaces often create obstacles for womxn of color to succeed and climb the corporate ladder. Due to this systemic oppression, many woc leave the traditional workplace to start their own business or supplement their income with side hustles.
For more on this phenomenon, please watch my talk with TEDxUCSD here.

I aim to support womxn through this transition into self-employment. Internalized racism and sexism makes this transition particularly difficult, and the homogeny of white online business owners deepens the cut of imposter syndrome for woc.

Woc Space is a community first. We provide an empowering space to remind woc of their own power, while encouraging them to pursue their true calling. We are all coaches, mentors, cheerleaders, confidantes, and supporters for each other in our entrepreneurial journey.

G O A L S

OF THIS CAMPAIGN

I want to diversify the stories we hear from entrepreneurs. I want to hear from womxn business owners across every industry, ethnicity, race, and all walks of life.

Through this campaign, I want to amplify voices of ALL womxn.
I want to pass the mic to folx from other marginalized communities and share the metaphorical stage with representatives of all life experience.

Representation matters.

The goal of this campaign is to bring more stories to the front to encourage more womxn to pursue their own entrepreneurial journey. If someone feels they see themselves in one of the businesswomxn represented, then it is more likely they will feel comfortable pursuing this life path.

Join us to hear from womxn of all walks of life,
and make sure they are compensated for their emotional labor by donating to this campaign.

T H A N K  Y O U !

This project would not be possible without your support. Thank you for supporting these womxn in sharing their stories and experience. You are not only supporting these panelists but the Woc Space community that will have the opportunity to hear these stories. Storytelling is one of the most powerful tools we have, and through it, we can dismantle oppressive systems and build better futures together. We are all experts in our own experience, and we need to treat ours and others' experiences with respect.
