Few women make it to leading positions such as Creative Director, and disappointingly so, there is a lack of support amongst female colleagues for one another.
As a female graphic designer that has been within the industry for a year, I have had the joy of working within a group of extremely talented females in a diverse range of fields, all under the trusted hand of a female Creative Director. It has been great to witness the success of so many women under one roof – but it is a shame that this is not more common throughout the industry.
That is why I am delighted to be the host for a new Ladies, Wine & Design chapter in Liverpool! LWD was an initiative started by Jessica Walsh that aims to tackle these issues and many more – ultimately connecting, empowering and supporting female creatives. There are now more than 180 chapters meeting regularly across the world. You can find out more about it here – www.ladieswinedesign.com
This will be a chance to celebrate and nurture creative talent within the city whilst generating a sense of community amongst women. There will be monthly meet-ups that cover everything and anything – from creative confidence, to the world of freelance. Prepare to meet the great bunch of female creatives who are shaping the industry in the city, along with wine, cheese and chatter!
LWD Liverpool will kicking off events for the year with a launch party. This will be taking place at Frederik’s, Hope St on Thursday 5th July from 6:30pm. You can book your spot on Eventbrite here.
