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 current statistics through mentorship and championing others' work. We couldn't agree more. Here are some articles that inspired us to start a Detroit chapter of Ladies, Wine & Design:

Where are all the Women Creative Directors?
Ladies, Wine & Design - The Original (NYC)
Design Census 2016
What We Can Do About the Dearth of Female Creatives?
Gender Disparities in the Design Field

Numbers show that there's a very small percentage of women leading the creative industry. However, we find the people we are inspired by most are often other talented ladies. Here are a few women we have admired, worked with, or had our eye on! Email us if you want to nominate someone for this list.
