Ladies, Wine &
a bit of Design in Manila

A conversation series
inspired by Jessica Walsh
& hosted by Cesca and Thea

Ladies, Wine & Design was started by Jessica Walsh after writing this article as an initiative to foster female creativity. Only a tiny percent of creative directors are women, and LW&D wants to help change this through mentorship circles, portfolio reviews, and creative meet-ups. A salon night held monthly will be open to at least ten creative ladies. We'll wine, dine, and have casual conversations on a wide variety of topics relating to creativity, business, and life. If you're a female student/professional or just a curious creative and would like to collaborate, please email us. Reservations are first come, first served. It's free to join!
Register for our events on Facebook and Instagram.

May 31, 7pm LW&D: Life of a Filipina Creative

Ladies, Wine & Design is now dancing in Manila! Join us on our first night as we gather up thoughts on the creative industry driven by Filipinas.

Jessica Walsh wrote an article on about her experience with other women in the industry, and how sometimes women can be unsupportive of each other. She's done a lot of thinking and reading on why there are so few women creative directors. Under Jessica's influence, we believe we can change that through mentorship and championing others' work. Here are some articles for inspiration 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?
3 % Conference: Video archive from their annual conference
Smashing Magazine: Gender Disparities in the Design Field

Numbers show that there's a very small percentage of women leading the creative industry. However, we find the people we're inspired by most are often other talented ladies. This list will be about the women we admire, work with, or have our eyes on! Email us if you want to nominate someone for this list.
