Ladies, Wine & Design
A conversation series inspired by Jessica Walsh
Hosted by Kristen Rodgers & Anne Herring
Ladies, Wine & Design was started by Jessica Walsh as an initiative to foster female creativity. Only a tiny percent of creative directors are women, and LW&D wants to help change this through monthly creative meet-ups, mentorship circles, and portfolio reviews. We’ll wine, snack, and have casual conversations on a wide variety of topics relating to creativity, business, and life. If you’re a female creative and would like to RSVP, please do email me. It's free to join! If you'd like to host us in your space, share your craft, be a mentor, or lead a discussion, please do get in touch.

Live Wild, Work Wild
Our creative energy has the power to shift perspectives, reimagine systems, and solve the big problems in this life. But too often patterns emerge in civilized society that stifle the flow of our wildest dreams. Product design, like all creative work - requires the obliteration of restraining boundaries. To do our best work as creative professionals, we need to practice embodying our soul selves through living wild. Join Emily McCammon, UX/UI & Product Design consultant, teacher and podcast co-host to celebrate letting your wild energy flow.

Jessica Walsh noticed that she is one of very few women creative directors. She believes that we can change that through mentorship and championing others' work. Here are some things that inspired her, as well as our own take on the matter, if you want to learn more:

Why We Have Too Few Women Leaders
Numbers show that there's a very small percentage of women leading the creative industry despite the overwhelming evidence that diversity is directly correlated to an organization's success. However, we find the people we're inspired by most are often other talented ladies. Here are a few women we admire, work with, or have our eyes on!
