Join AIGA Seattle in partnership with CreativeLive for a women’s leadership panel featuring female creatives from Hum Creative, Microsoft, Jackson Fish Market, and Teague. It will be an evening dedicated to hearing from strong female leaders on their experiences with challenging stereotypes, negotiating their potential and defining what success means to them. These local, powerhouses will talk critically on women’s leadership issues and offer advice for the next generation of leaders.
The panel discussion will be followed by drinks & refreshments where you will have the opportunity to converse with panelists and fellow attendees.
Men are invited and encouraged to be a part of this important conversation.
This is part of the broader Woman Up Initiative which is committed to empowering women in design and advancing the vital discourse on issues facing professional women. Woman Up celebrates the achievements of women in design, cultivates awareness of gender-related issues, while building knowledge and leadership skills; and connects by facilitating relationships within and beyond the design industry.
