August 27, 1 - 2 pm PST The Next Generation of Visual Storytelling

Explore one female founder's journey to change the way we tell visual stories using game dynamics and AR. RSVP here!

Jessica Walsh started Ladies, Wine & Design in New York after doing a lot of thinking and reading on why so few womxn hold leadership roles in creative industries. She believes we can change this trend through mentorship and championing others' work. We couldn't agree more, and we also thought it would be fun to meet other designers - voila! Ladies, Wine & Design San Francisco was born.

Numbers show that womxn make up a very small percentage leaders in the creative industry. Despite this - and sometimes because of it - so many of our greatest inspirations are other talented professionals in the field. Here are just a few of the womxn we admire around the Bay Area. If you have a story to share about a fabulous creative and want to nominate them for this list, please email us.
