A monthly salon night held in Houston that brings up to eight creative ladies together. We’ll wine, dine, and discuss a wide variety of topics relating to creativity, business, and life. If you’re a female student or creative and would like to join, please email me. Reservations are first come, first serve. Additionally, please get in touch if you'd like to host us in your space, teach a workshop, or be a guest speaker.

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. Jessica believes we can change that through mentorship and championing others' work. I couldn't agree more. Here are some articles that inspired me to start a Houston chapter of Ladies, Wine & Design:

Kill Them With Kindness
The Power of Vulnerability
Where Are All The Women Creative Directors?
An Open Letter to Up-and-Coming Women in Digital Design

Numbers show that there's a very small percentage of women leading the creative industry. However, the people we could be most inspired by most are other talented ladies. Let's build a list of women we have admired, worked with, or had our eyes on! Email me if you want to nominate someone for this list, especially women in the Space City.
