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

Where Are All the Women Creative Directors?
More Than A Gender
The Power of Vulnerability

We're working on a list of creative women that we feel are admirable and inspirational. Please email if you would like to nominate someone.
