Ladies, Wine &
a bit of Design
A conversation series
for Saskatoon Creatives
Hosted by Roberta Barrington
Only a tiny percent of creative directors are women, and LW&D wants to help change this through mentorship circles, portfolio reviews, and creative meet-ups. In less than a year of launching, we've spread to chapters in over 120 cities all over the world. In Saskatoon, LW&D is a monthly salon night limited to a small group of creative women. We’ll wine, dine, and have casual conversations on a wide variety of topics relating to creativity, business, and life. If you’d like to join or get in touch, please email us. Follow us on Instagram for event announcements: @ladieswinedesign_yxe.

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. We couldn't agree more and we'd like to expand on that thought by empowering all types of local female creatives. Here are some articles that inspired us to start a Saskatoon chapter of Ladies, Wine & Design:
