Date/Time/Meeting place planning in the works!

Jessica Walsh started Ladies, Wine & Design in New York after reflecting 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 lady designers, so we reached out and started a Boston chapter.

Numbers show that there's a very small percentage of women leading the creative industry. Here are a few women we have admired, worked with, or are excited to see grow in their career! Email us at: if you want to nominate someone for this list -- It's work in progress.
