Yari Blanco is the founder and editor-in-chief of the Girl Mob (TGM), a digital sisterhood for women of color. If there is one thing Blanco knows about, it is how to create a sense of community. She is a former community manager and current head of diversity at The Wing, a women’s co-working and networking space. She started her career working for media outlets like Mun2 and BET and found that even spaces for people of color can feel unsafe because of lack of mutual support. Through live events, podcasts, and articles, Blanco has perfected the art of making space.
