October 8, 2022 Welcome LW&D Astana

Get ready for the first LW&D meetup in Astana! We're planning an open discussion about empathy and toxic environment in our design communities, fears and failures, pains and gains.
Let’s open up about our own personal experiences and challenges of being a designer.

Jessica Walsh started Ladies, Wine & Design in New York 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. Now more than ever, women need to work together to foster healthy and positive connections, dialogue and help empower each other. Inspired by this vision, we - Dana Assanova and Kamilya Mukhamejanova decided to start the LW&D chapter in Astana.
