Ladies, Wine &
a bit of Design

A conversation series
Founded by Jessica Walsh
Hosted by Grayson Morrow & Jen Riedel

Hello ladies! A discussion night will be held monthly for ladies to wine, dine and have casual conversations on a wide variety of topics relating to creativity, business, and life. If you're a female student or creative and would like to join please email me here!

Oct 12th, 7:15 Chit Chat

As the first of hopefully many events, we'll kick off this series with people who would like to join. We'll enjoy wine, chat design and future topics at Port of Raleigh.

Nov 14th, 7:00 Designer as Author

As designers we don't need to only make other peoples brands look great. We can develop our own content & ideas and use storytelling as a tool. Molly Davis Lind will be our guest speaker http://wonsupona.com

Jan 26th, 7:00 Lead by Design

Today's world is calling for more designers to serve as leaders. At the same time, it's calling for more female leaders. Are we ready?
In this session, you'll jam with Marie Schacht and others in the group on this complex topic. We'll unpack it, question it, and give every ounce of our curiosity to it.
