Add Womxn Main Board

Our story.

Our creation story inspires women everywhere.

Renita Faye realized she hadn’t worked with a Black designer since her first job out of design school back in 1995. And so she decided to do something about it. Because she knew the possibility and promise of diversity. She had experienced it firsthand.

Renita’s first design job was with a Black-owned firm. She was the only white woman on the team. One of her next design jobs was with a firm that was co-owned by an entrepreneurial woman and a man of Asian descent. In the decades since, she found herself working in a sea of sameness, marked by an astonishing lack of women leadership and racial diversity within the design community.

The year 2020 inspired Renita to act on her vision of a new kind of agency. Impacted by George Floyd’s murder and the racial reckoning in Minneapolis, Renita got to work. She reached out to her talented network to create a new way of working together. AddWomxn is the proud outcome of her inspiring vision. Where women connect through affinity. And diversity takes priority.
