Yerman is co-founder of cultureID, an online community dedicated to a nexus of culture and activism.

Yerman promotes the view that if women's frame of reference is not reflected in the arts (film, theater, visual arts, literature), then their true identities and visions will be defined by male-driven popular culture.

She has worked with both non-profit organizations and the business sector. She was a consultant on women and culture at The Women's Media Center, and handled public relations and outreach for The Feminist Art Project. Yerman was host and producer of Women In Art, a cable television program about women in the art world.
