Ladies, Wine & Design was started after realizing that women sometimes view each other as competition rather than allies in the Creative industry. With a statistically low percentage of female art directors, Jessica saw Ladies, Wine & Design as a way to create a healthy, welcoming community for women to support one another through mentorship circles, talks, and creative meet-ups. Today, our chapters have grown to over 180 cities worldwide. We host monthly events to gather creative women. We’ll wine, dine, and have casual conversations on a wide variety of topics relating to creativity, business, and life. We want to inspire women and encourage them to speak out more in the creative industry.
