Spring Has Sprung Hello Bangor!

Our very first meeting for the launch of Ladies, Wine and Design Bangor, Maine is in the works. We wanted to bring LWD to this region of the state because we know that there are so many incredibly talented and creative women in this area and there need to be more resources for us to connect and collaborate.
Stay tuned for an update on the specific date, location and time as we are currently working on setting up those details.
Opening Soon

Upcoming: Want to host and event or be a presenter? We want to welcome you!

We are always looking for creative spaces and presenters to share their knowledge with other eager minded ladies. If you are interested in hosting a LWD evening or be a guest presenter, please reach out to us.

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.
We couldn't agree more, and we also think it would be fun to meet other creative women. We want to create a warm, open and honest environment were woman can talk real with each other. We want to be on each other's side because creative ladies rule!

Below are a few articles and resources to get your creative minds fired-up!

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 have admired, worked with, or had my eye on! Email me if you want to nominate someone for this list.
