Julie Kim

Mother, Writer, Editor

I started my career in the publishing department at SFMOMA and as a contributing writer for The Architect’s Newspaper. For the last 12 years, I’ve been working in communications roles at nonprofits and tech companies, including Slack, where I was editorial director for two years. Right now, I’m devoting myself to freelancing, co-chairing the City Arts & Lectures board of directors, and caring for my disabled daughter, Izzy.

Networking For the Rest of Us

Networking is tough, especially if your happy place is in your studio, on your own. But when independence touches all parts of your life, success won’t come unless you eat your veggies and put yourself out there. In this session, Karen Wickre — a life-long writer, introvert, and, yes, connector of people — sits down with writer and editor Julie Kim to share tips for building a strong creative network by sticking to your own style, at your own pace, and without ever feeling like you need to “work the room.”
