We Are Rosie is a thriving community that specializes in helping Creatives get hired for remote projects and opportunities.
We Are Rosie was founded in 2018 by advertising executive Stephanie Nadi Olson. Stephanie based this community on a genuine understanding of what it feels like to “not belong.” Her life experience as the daughter of a refugee has driven her affinity and advocacy for marginalized groups. We Are Rosie is a manifestation of her soul’s calling to create a better way to do business by focusing on the people doing the work.
“The way we’ve always seen it, remote work is inherently a form of inclusion. To hire without borders gives companies access to so much talent that’s often overlooked. Our community is incredibly diverse, and we don’t publicize it because of course they are!” shares Head of Marketing, Kiana Pirouz.
“Our mission is to create more access to opportunities for our community; opportunities that fit their skills, passions, and lifestyle needs. It’s about seeing the whole person, not just their resume. That’s the paradigm shift we’re pushing for.”
As we shared on our job board post, we know that one of the central components necessary for a sustainable career is finding the right gig. Unfortunately, for many talented Black and Brown creators, those opportunities are hinged upon connecting with gatekeepers they may not have access to. We love that We Are Rosie has a specific commitment to help diverse talent find their way in this world.
This fellow community is so important to us, that we also included it in our list of COVID-19 Resources for Creatives as well.
