Congratulations to Lynn Harris, Founder of GOLD Comedy for being the WomensNet Mini Grant recipient.

GOLD Comedy is a platform for young women and non-binary folks who want to become their funniest selves. The live online classes, content, and community help young women build skills and explore career paths in today’s most relevant forms of comedy. Harris explains, “GOLD aims to use comedy to inspire girls to demand and command the stage and to deliver a critical mass of funny girls with the comedy skills they need to take over the world.”

The WomensNet Mini Grant will help GOLD Comedy with the marketing boost they need to reach young women who love comedy all over the country and want to build their skills but don’t know where or how.
