Inspired by London.
The WW [Working Women's] Club is a platform and community for women working in creative industries worldwide, founded by Phoebe Lovatt (that's me - the one in white). The Club is inspired by my hometown of London and all the amazing women I'm lucky to know there.
FOUNDED IN L.A.
After moving Los Angeles in 2012, I missed these women more than I could've imagined - not least when it came to finding support and motivation in my working life (I'm a freelance journalist and moderator - read more about that over here).
After two years spent complaining that I couldn't find anywhere to meet and work with likeminded women, I figured I should probably stop whining and do something about it. At the start of 2015, I decided to build a space - both physical and virtual - that I hoped would be a meeting ground/support network for working women in LA and beyond.
FOR WORKING WOMEN WORLDWIDE.
Named with a tongue-in-cheek nod to the traditional Working Men's Clubs that once existed across the UK, The WW Club is a place for women to meet, collaborate, learn, hang out...and maybe swap business cards over a happy hour drink. The first 'real life' gathering took the form of a pop-up work and event space in the Downtown Los Angeles in January 2015. Since then, I've hosted freelancer meet-ups, dinner parties, talks, and cocktail hours in LA, New York City, Paris, London, and Taipei.
