"We believe in educating, empowering, and connecting powerful, ambitious, hilarious, and talented women in the comedy industry with resources that foster their professional development and advancement. Through our online and real-life community, we promote the creation of personal relationships, business relationships, and mentoring relationships in order to advance and increase women's voices, presence, and pay scale in the comedy industry."

VOLUNTEER AREAS

Our areas of volunteer opportunity are ever-evolving which means our volunteers will always be engaged in new and exciting activities. Currently, we are seeking well-connected, organized, and reliable volunteers to help our brand new Chicago Chapter. As the chapter grows you will help grow its network and facilitate live events in tandem with our Chicago hub.

Role: Head of Fundraising & Sponsorships for Chicago Chapter

The Chapter Head of Fundraising & Sponsorships is a part-time volunteer position responsible to carry out our mission statement to empower, connect, and advocate for women and girls seeking paid careers in comedy. The Head of Fundraising & Sponsorships is the head coordinator and responsible for securing all venues and sponsorships/donations for our 3 key events each year (put on in sister cities across the nation in Winter, Spring/Summer, Fall).

Duties may include but are not limited to:

  1. Spearhead and execute the sponsorship and venue donation process of 3 successful events in tandem with headquarters utilizing all Women In Comedy documents, timelines, and assignments.

  2. Attend weekly scheduled meetings with your committee.

  3. Answer and respond to phone calls, emails, and more from headquarters, volunteers, venues etc.

Our volunteer base is building and expanding. We are excited to be in the launching phase of the organization and this will afford opportunities for dedicated volunteers to become volunteer department heads in the near future as the organization evolves and we identify the top areas of need in our community. For now, we are asking volunteer event coordinators to help us replicate and facilitate events in various cities. Our opportunities allow our volunteers to help remotely as well if they cannot physically be present.
