Ladies, Wine & Design

Ladies, Wine & Design

Creative conversations in Basel
hosted by Anahat Kaur & Simone Marie

Ladies, Wine & Design is a global non-profit initiative with chapters in 280 cities worldwide. LW&D was founded in 2015 by Jessica Walsh. Only .1% of creative agencies are founded by women & non-binary people, and the numbers are even smaller for women/non-binary BIPOC. Our mission is to see more diversity in the creative industry, especially within leadership roles.
Our space is inclusive of all women, non-binary, agender and gender non-conforming people. Self-definition is at the sole discretion of that individual. If you feel you could benefit from a space meant for people who do not identify as cis men to share ideas and collaborate, you are welcome.
Alcohol is entirely optional; you can drink tea, coffee, or whatever you like! Our aim is to inspire, engage and exchange ideas as well as experiences. We aim to host bi-monthly meetings that star guest speakers and instigate creative communication.
