Jessica Walsh wrote an article on 12kindsofkindness.com, Step 6, about her experience with other women in the industry, and how sometimes women can be unsupportive of each other. She realized that there were very few women holding creative director roles across the industry and wondered what we could do to grow beyond that, thus creating Ladies, Wine & Design.
Stop Talking About Luck
We can change the creative leadership playing field through mentorship, encouraging one another and championing others' work. Here are some inspirational articles if you'd like to learn more:
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 want to bring that same energy and positivity to the creative community of women here in Dallas. We want salon nights and events to have an atmosphere that is friendly, honest and inspirational. Come out to one of our events every month to meet other talented women in our growing city.
