Jessica Walsh started Ladies, Wine & Design 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.

Rebecca Wright on the ratio of girls with design degrees vs. those in the industry

Numbers show that there's a very small percentage of women leading the creative industry. However, I find the people I'm inspired by most are often other talented ladies. Here are a few women I've admired, worked with, or had my eye on! Email if you want to nominate someone for this list.
