March 16th, 7pm Become the Queen Bey of Networking

Networking gets a bad rap—it can be awkward, intimidating, and often fruitless. So, we're turning to the experts. From your portfolio to cold calls, learn how to stand out in a competitive industry. We've partnered with Kay & Black for this 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!
