January 31st, 2018 2018 Kickoff

Come wine, dine, and talk design with your favorite community of creative women. We’re hosting our first event of the year at One Bedford. This will be a casual evening of schmoozing and boozing (shop talk optional). The Haiku Poets are also joining us to create real time haiku poems for our attendees.

February 28th, 2018 Fast Chats

Join us for an evening of short conversations with 5 creative ladies who are forces in their respective industries. Bring those burning questions and get answers, and who knows, maybe make some lifelong connections. The talented ladies leading discussions include: Jess Williams, Noemie Le Coz, Kara Cohen, Ilana Kruger, and Yannell Rodriguez

March 2018 Event Announcement Coming Soon

Please stay tuned as we finalize details for our next event.

Jessica Walsh noticed that she is one of very few women creative directors. She believes that we can change that through mentorship and championing others' work. Here are some things that inspired her, as well as our own take on the matter, if you want to learn more:

What's Your Pay Gap?
Brené Brown on The Power of Vulnerability
Amy Cuddy: Your body language shapes who you are
This is the city with the largest percentage of women-led startups (spoiler, it's Brooklyn!)
Exploring Gender and Compensation
Where Are All The Women Creative Directors?

Numbers show that there's a very small percentage of women leading the creative industry despite the overwhelming evidence that diversity is directly correlated to an organization's success. However, we find the people we're inspired by most are often other talented ladies. Here are a few women we admire, work with, or have our eyes on!
