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 – especially if they are in the Canberra region.
