Many women study design yet the creative world seems to be dominated by men. We want to change that. Let's encourage each other, both within Edinburgh and across the world to champion female creatives so we can get more female CEOs, Creative Directors and Entrepreneurs. Here are some things that inspired us if you want to learn more:

Teach Girls Bravery: Not Perfection
Survival Tips for Women in Motion Design
Why We Have Too Few Women Leaders
Network & Hustle: The Key Skills for Women in Technology
Getting Girls Involved in STEM (Thanks Colleen!)

Numbers show that there's a very small percentage of women leading the creative industry. However, we find the people we're most inspired by are often other talented ladies. Here are a few women we have come to admire! Email us if you want to nominate someone for this list.
