COMMUNITY

Since our launch in June 2019, our mission has been to cultivate inclusive communities, inspire collaboration, empower women, femmes and non-binary folks to reach their full potential by sharing their gifts with the world, and celebrate the glow up!

THE TEAM

Behind the Scenes

NICOLE LEBLANC

Co-Founder

Born and raised in San Francisco, Nicole LeBlanc is an organizer and activist whose work centers community care and action. With a degree in Communications and Sociology from The University of Colorado Boulder and extensive experience in event coordination, most recently at The Wing, she co-founded Homeroom Collective in 2019 as a platform for building authentic connections in the age of social media.

 

Through Homeroom, she's created a safe space for the exchange of ideas and resources among creatives to foster collaboration, empowerment, and inclusive communities. Homeroom is a celebration of the glow up: a space for womxn, femmes, and non-binary folks to share their gifts and reach their full potential.

KHIRA GOINS-PAXON

Co-Founder

Khira is a photo and event producer, currently positioned as Creative Producer at Thinx. Khira moved from Nashville to Brooklyn in 2016, with a B.A. in Fashion Merchandising and Business Administration. Khira founded Portion, a circular industry based magazine, in 2017 and has since spent time connecting with local creatives, brands and community organizations.

Homeroom is a growing community building a platform for collaboration and growth. Alongside Nicole, Khira's hopes are to bring opportunities and give voice to Black Trans Women, queer individuals and womxn in creative, social and political industries.
