As Women In Comedy is growing, we are seeking to recruit an advisory board to meet once per month to advise on the activities and initiatives of Women In Comedy and we would love your perspectives at the table. Women In Comedy launched in 2015. Over the course of 2017 we are proud to say that with 100% volunteer efforts, generous donations, no operating budget and a lot of passion -we have already been able to launch 4 Women In Comedy chapter cities in NY, LA, Chicago, and DC (and growing). Women In Comedy has successfully implemented dozens of free events to bring hundreds of women together in safe spaces on a shoestring budget, and the work our group of dedicated volunteers has been doing to empower, connect, and advocate for women and girls in comedy has been featured in The Washington Post, ELLE Magazine, NY Magazine, The Samantha Bee Show, The Chicago Tribune, Jezebel, Buzzfeed, and more. We even had Maria Bamford donate time as a surprise guest to perform at one of our most recent events in Los Angeles!

We would be honored if you would consider joining the advisory board of Women In Comedy to provide your expert guidance to our efforts. The time commitment is minimal:

  1. Provide advice and insight on organization's operations
  2. Attend Advisory Board meetings - 1-2 hours, once per month, in person and/or virtually (Video chat). These will be coordinated on a date/time that meets consistently each month.
  3. The term is one year and starts May 1 2018 and ends May 1 2019 with possible renewal.
  4. Be available on occasion to give insights as a mentor to the organization privately or concerning areas of your expertise as needed.
If you are interested in helping us with our mission to empower, connect, and advocate, we look forward to hearing from you!
