On our 2nd meetup, we will share some good breakfast and inspiration! Led by Nvard Yerkanian and Sona Avagian, we will host exciting panelists and attendees.

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.
Inspired by this vision, we — Gayane Yerkanyan, Product Designer now based in Amsterdam, and Marianna Vardanyan, co-founder of Proper, spent an impressive number of hours talking along these lines. Soon, the decision to start LW&D Yerevan chapter was made.
