Board of Directors: Babes With Blades Theatre Company

The Pitch

Babes With Blades Theatre Company uses stage combat to tell stories that elevate the voices of underrepresented communities and creates theatre that explores the wide range of the human experience. BWBTC board members can help amplify these voices in the community and help create a brave space to explore creativity, leadership, and social change.

There are MANY ways to get involved - much of our work happens virtually, so a Chicagoland address is NOT required.

Our Board and You

A good fit for our board would embody the following:

  • Passion for and alignment with our mission
  • Supportive of LGBTQAI+, BIPOC, and women's issues
  • Positivity, creative thinking, and professional skills
  • Strong networks, readiness to raise resources and build connections
  • Self-starters with strong execution and follow-through
  • Skills of all kinds welcome, but especially fundraising/development, legal, strategic planning, and network building

Time and Financial/Fundraising Commitments

Board members are expected to contribute the following:

  • Time - One 60-minute virtual board meeting each month, attendance/volunteering (if in Chicago) at 2 in-person fundraising event per year. BWBTC show attendance strongly encouraged, but not required.
  • Financial/Fundraising - Each board member is expected to fundraise a minimum of $600 annually. This can be contributed through a direct donation from the board member, OR via fundraising events coordinated by the member, sponsors/donors brought in by the member, or through other fundraising/development activities facilitated by the member.
