Tune in to hear Kat Jagai, Girls Write Now mentor and mentee alum, speak on the value of having role models and representation on International Women’s Day!
Barbie’s The Dream Gap Project, The Female Quotient and Girls Write Now join forces to make the workplace for women better—which makes the workplace better for everyone.
In this virtual #EqualityLounge, hear from leaders who understand the value of having diverse role models and are spearheading initiatives within their own organizations to advance the careers of women and girls around the world.
K. A. Jagai is a writer, artist, and editor from Brooklyn, New York. They work in IP for Alloy Entertainment, a creative think tank and full-service editorial partner that develops and produces original books, television series, and feature films. Jagai’s own writing has appeared in Frontier Poetry, Electric Literature, Publishers Weekly, and elsewhere. They were awarded Summer Literary Seminars’ 2018 Poetry Fellowship and have taken classes at Cave Canem. They received their B.A. from Bennington College in 2016, where they studied literature, printmaking, and critical race theory. In both art and writing, they are seeking that light within themselves and others that can only be seen when one is forced into the dark.
