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. It has always amazed me how few female creative directors there were in the creative landscape—thus the chance to rally together, in a supportive environment to talk freely, have fun and engaging conversations seemed perfect. As both a creative director, mother and founder of a design and branding firm I could not agree with her more, through both collective mentoring and championing of each others work I look forward hosting these events and meeting you as we continue to build a strong community of Ladies, Wine & Design.

Below are a few articles and resources to get your creative lady minds fired-up!

The 3% Conference

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. I look forward to adding more woman of admiration to this list as we start our series. Specifically women in Portland, Maine who share my same passion for creativity, energy and industry growth.
