Share your
Story

Need a platform?

We want to shine a spotlight on as many extraordinary women as we can. So if you have a great story or some expertise to share, we have a big, diverse community that we’d like to introduce you to. Check out the opportunities detailed below — which include both articles and speaking — and if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out.

ARTICLES

Hello, my name is

Meet a Role Model

If you are looking to share a bit about who you are and some of the gems of wisdom you’ve learned on your journey to success, our Meet a Role Model column may be a fit for you. 

We’ll send questions over email, which you can respond to with a few words or a few sentences — so you don’t have to be an expert writer. The article also opens with a short bio to introduce who you are and what is unique about you. This is strictly editorial, so there’s no opportunity for promotional messages, but it’s a great way to get your name out there, and at no cost. 

Self-identified women and non-binary individuals who are potential role models for our WOI Community. This includes everything from entrepreneurs to advocates, with a broad range of achievements and extraordinary journeys. You can find samples here to get a sense of what we’re looking for. Typically, you can be described in one (or a few) of the following ways: the first, the only, the leading, or the award-winning. Not you? Don’t disqualify yourself. If there’s something about you that you think deserves sharing, reach out via email

  • A personal bio, which we will use to craft the short intro for the article. 
  • A photo that can ideally be displayed (or cropped) in landscape orientation.  Aim for a minimum size of 1200 pixels x 650 pixels (but we recommend sending your largest sized options). 
  • Responses to the questions provided.

Start by sending us your bio via email, and if we think you’re a fit we’ll get the process started. Due to a very high volume of requests and a very small team, we can’t get back to everyone. Even if you have been selected, it may take a few weeks to hear back.

Once you’ve received your questions, there will be no deadline provided for your responses; the sooner we have them, the sooner we can schedule your article for publishing. This is our most popular column, which means there’s quite a few in the queue — so we can’t guarantee when your article will run, and standard wait time is 8-12 weeks.

let me tell you

Expert Advice

Our Expert Advice section offers an opportunity for subject matter experts and qualified leaders to provide actionable advice on a specific topic relevant for our audience of professional women. 

Expert Advice articles are based on the accumulated experience of a career (I’m an expert, this is my advice…). If the story revolves more around a personal experience (I went through this, and learned…), it could be a great fit for a Lessons Learned format. We also have opportunities for shorter pieces dispensing advice in our Good Question and Five Minutes With columns. These are all strictly editorial, so we’ll ask you to revise anything that is too promotional — but your name will appear in the byline, and at the end of the article we include a bio, with image, that can have links to your website or contact information.

Self-identified women and non-binary individuals who are subject matter experts or leaders — and have the ability to write (or access to a ghost writer). It can take more time than Meet a Role Model, but that’s in exchange for greater opportunities for promotion. You can find samples here to get a sense of what we’re looking for. There are several columns that fit under the Expert Advice umbrella, so if you think one might be a fit for you, reach out via email

  • A personal bio, maximum of 60 words, which we will include at the end of the article. 
  • A photo that can ideally be displayed (or cropped) in square and landscape orientation.  Aim for a minimum size of 1200 pixels x 650 pixels (but we recommend sending your largest sized options). 
  • A short synopsis of the topic (or a few ideas) that we will approve before you proceed. 
  • Writing samples if available. 

Start by sending us via email a personal bio (this can be longer than 60 words) and a general idea of what subject you would like to focus on. We’ll then work with you to determine the final article topic. Due to a very high volume of requests and a very small team, it may take a few weeks to hear back, though we do aim to respond to everyone.

Once we’ve approved your topic, we’ll provide you with a Writing Guide. There will be no deadline for your article, but the sooner we have the first draft, the sooner we can schedule your article for publishing.
