We are Creatives. We are Bosses. We are Leaders. We are Equal.
Few organizations have women in active leadership roles. And although there are more women graduates from higher education in creative industries, women still earn 20% less than men. So why are women so underrepresented as leaders?
AIGA Tampa Bay and Babe Crafted is proud to honor Women’s History month by hearing from some of our local women leaders. We have a few talented “Bosses of Design” joining us for a panel discussion on women leadership in creative professions. Our panelists include Djenee T. Dunn of D.TAMU, Marti + Cait of Bridge and Bloom, and Amy Braswell of PaperFinch Design. They will discuss the highs and lows of their careers, how they got to where they are today, and what they’re planning to do next.
We will be raffling off a gift basket by Fig & Julep with an array of unique culinary gifts worth $125. AIGA Members automatically get 1 ticket FREE. Raffle tickets for sale at the door for $5 each.
Join us in celebrating, empowering, and connecting women in design within our community.
Thank you to our sponsors, The Art Institute of Tampa, Babe Crafted and Fig and Julep.
