Ladies, Wine & Design was started by Jessica Walsh – art director and partner at Sagmeister & Walsh in New York, 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 meetups. Jessica 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 been doing a lot of thinking and reading on why there are so few women creative directors. Here are some articles that inspired her if you want to learn more:
