After hearing about Ladies Wine and Design, we've been doing a lot of thinking and reading on why there are so few women leading the creative industry. We believe we can change that through mentorship and championing others' work. Here are a few articles if you want to learn more:

Numbers show that there's a very small percentage of women leading the creative industry. Here are a few creative women who have been in person and virtual mentors for SDCO. This list is always evolving—email us if you'd like to nominate someone.
