WCCW x MeUndies

MeUndies has selected the Women’s Center for Creative Work as one of three organizations it will make a significant contribution to this year as part of it’s #MeUndiesGives campaign. Read more about MeUndies and why they chose to support Women’s Center for Creative Work in the Q&A below.

Who is MeUndies?

MeUndies is a brand that wants to empower self-expression. Growing up, society stifles us at every turn, telling us what to wear and who to be. We wanted to do something different, we wanted to create a platform for you to express yourself however you please. 

Which is why we design soft, sustainable products that allow you to finally say yes to you. To celebrate your differences, embrace your true self—quirks and all. Whether you wear black Undies or Unicorn Onesies, we think that’s amazing, more power to ya. We want you to feel free to be your authentic self, whatever that may be. 

 

What are some MeUndies feminist beliefs and practices?

MeUndies believes in creating a workplace environment that supports women and their growth and allows them to thrive. We practice this every day with programs we’ve implemented in HQ and beyond. 

The Women’s Group is an employee resource group that meets monthly. We discuss topics ranging from vulnerability and career advice, to ideating and hosting large scale projects—like our Hackathon partnership with a local school in 2019. 

We sponsor the women of MeUndies to attend leadership conferences and events for their learning and development. We also support a women’s enrichment program with MAS, our manufacturing partners in Sri Lanka. 

Truly, our mission is to empower self-expression. We believe when you’re comfortable in what you wear and who you are, you are unstoppable. 

 

Why is this collaboration important to you?

As a Los Angeles founded and based brand, this partnership is important to us because we are committed to our community and the work that WCCW does to serve this tight-knit community. 

 

How did you find out about WCCW?

In preparation to launch MeUndies cause marketing platform, MeUndies Gives, we thoughtfully searched for partners that were actively championing our 2020 commitment to empowering self-expression through conversation and creativity. 

MeUndies Senior Designer, Sheerin Vatankhah, attended an event hosted at WCCW and advocated for it’s alignment to MeUndies values: “It’s a fun, welcoming, and inclusive 

space where I felt comfortable and represented. It’s freeing knowing there’s a place where I can be creative and connect with other diverse creatives in the community.” 

 

What do you hope for in the collaboration? // What do you hope to leave with the WCCW community?

We hope that through our collaboration, we are able to introduce our work and values to the WCCW community and educate MeUndies customers, LA-based and beyond, of the WCCW resources and commitment to cultivating feminist creative communities and practices.
