CO-FOUNDER OF WOMEN OF ACTION
In 2015, I co-founded the women's collective Women of Action, an affiliate group under the AIDS Healthcare Foundation. In collaboration with two additional co-founders, I concepted and pitched the group’s mission and vision and presented to key stakeholders for buy-in.
During our first year, we secured a six-figure budget to create programs around the world.
DIGITAL ART AND COPY DIRECTOR FOR WOA.LA WEBSITE, 2015
For the launch of Women of Action, I built WOA's website to help share updates from WOA initiatives—and as a way to provide information to collaborators and press about Women of Action.
CO-PROJECT MANAGER FOR INTERNATIONAL DAY OF THE GIRL CHILD INITIATIVE, 2015
Women Of Action (WOA) launched the She’s Her Ally initiative for 2015’s International Day of the Girl. For the initiative, WOA crafted a day of activities for young girls (ages 5 – 13) to facilitate the communication of their hopes, fears, and dreams, build relationships in their community, and have fun—in the hopes of working towards primary prevention among HIV- girls, and medication adherence among HIV+ girls.
The initiative impacted over 500 girls across five continents.
EVENT PRODUCER FOR INTERNATIONAL DAY OF THE GIRL EVENT, 2015
To celebrate the launch of the She’s Her Ally initiative, WOA hosted an event in Downtown Los Angeles on International Day of the Girl. At the event, WOA shared photos of girls from around the world that participated in our She's Her Ally program. WOA also shared artwork created by those girls. Visitors took home literature about the initiative, purchased a print featuring the She's Her Ally program participants, wrote letters to She's Her Ally participants around the world, and enjoyed food and drinks in an open courtyard.
The one-day event was attended by over 250 people.
ROSE PARADE CAMPAIGN, 2016
Following our International Day of the Girl Child's She's Her Ally initiative, Women of Action was chosen to spearhead the creation of AHF's Rose Parade based on the IDGC initiative. The float celebrated and sought to empower young girls (ages 5 - 13) around the world.
As part of its 2016 "A Girl’s World of Adventure" Rose Parade activities, AHF and Women of Action hosted events for the It's Her Journey float ambassadors, including a special private tea party reception honoring the five girls. The tea party reception blended elements of traditional Japanese tea with an Alice in Wonderland sensibility, featuring creative tea party attire as well as place cards and decorations highlighting famous women of accomplishment throughout history.
Following the Rose Parade campaign, I created a review of the initiative to present to key stakeholders.
