Dyke Bar Takeover Kitchener Waterloo is a volunteer-based initiative dedicated to creating and supporting spaces for queer cis, trans women, non-binary folx and allies. As one of the core volunteers, I am committed to bi-weekly meetings as well as attending all virtual and in-person events.
As Communications Manager, I am responsible for all external written content and community engagement including social media management, website copy, event promotion (Facebook events, Eventbrite, etc.), Mailchimp newsletters to both general subscribers and volunteers, public statements about world events, and more.
The most important part of my work with Dyke Bar Takeover KW is to ensure that all language is inclusive, accessible, and aligns with our mandate. This has involved much personal learning and listening to the queer community and their needs. I’m honoured to be trusted with the voice of an organization that is so close to our hearts.
