GirlGaze is a social network that connects women and non-binary individuals working in the creative industry with each other and employers with job opportunities. It was founded in 2017 by Amanda de Cadenet. The idea to create the network stems from her conversation with her sister over their shared experiences in the difficulty of getting compensation for creative work, which in her case, was photography.The company is headquartered in Los Angeles, California, United States.
GirlGaze operates a website that serves as a platform where creative workers, such as photographers, creative directors, artists, and editors can feature their work portfolio and receive relevant job opportunities. Registration for members is available for all, although acceptance is determined by GirlGaze's team. The community accepts applicants worldwide. To access GirlGaze's database of members and their portfolio, companies must join a paid subscription to the service. Companies that have collaborated with the company include Google, Adobe, Glamour Magazine, and GAP.
