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

Ad Age: What We Can Do About the Dearth of Female Creatives?
Fast co: Where are all the women Creative Directors?
