Ladies, Wine &
a bit of Design

A conversation series
from Jessica Walsh
Hosted by R2i

A salon night held monthly will be limited to eight creative ladies. We'll have drinks and casual conversations on a wide variety of topics relating to creativity, business, and life. If you're a female student or creative and would like to join, please email us. It's free and reservations are first come, first serve. You can follow us on Instagram and Facebook, and if you'd like to host us in your space, teach a workshop, or lead a discussion, please do get in touch.

Jessica Walsh started Ladies, Wine & Design in New York after doing a lot of thinking and reading on why there are so few women creative directors. She believes we can change that through mentorship and championing others' work. We couldn't agree more, and we also think it would be fun to meet other women designers!

Numbers show that there's a very small percentage of women leading the creative industry. However, the people we could be most inspired by most are other talented ladies. Let's build a list of women we have admired, worked with, or had our eyes on! Email us if you want to nominate someone for this list, especially women in Baltimore.
