Event description
SheSays London joins forces with TikTok and invites female leaders in the creative and tech industry to discuss their journeys.

About this Event

In the bid of demystifying what it takes to climb up the ladder as a female creative, SheSays London joins forces with TikTok to run 'She Leads' event as a part of #SheStandsOut campaign.

Being a strong woman in a male-dominated industry and workplace can be challenging. Currently in the UK, only 16% of creative directors are women*. The typical gender split of junior designers in creative industries is 60:40, in favour of women. So what happens along the way up for female creatives?

Join us as we sit down with some of the strongest, award-winning, creative female leaders to discuss their journeys. Topics include what they've learned along the way and how they navigate rough waters including getting their voice heard, dealing with challenging situations, difficult colleagues and ultimately, uniting a diverse team.

Free entry for all external attendees and WeWork members, but you must RSVP to secure your place. (limited tickets available)

Our Panelists include:

Jane Evans (Founder of Uninvisibility project)

Jo Wallace (Creative Director Wunderman Thompson and Founder Good Girls Eat Dinner)

Pip Jamieson (Founder of The Dots, The Sunday Times Top 100 Disruptive Entrepreneurs, and British Interactive Media Association (BIMA) Top 100)

Rania Robinson (CEO of Quiet Storm Agency)

Vikki Ross (Copy Chief, Copy Mentor, Copy Trainer, created #copywritersunite)

Jingjing Zhang (TikTok - Director of Global Communications, Founder and Co-host of Wo Men Podcast)

Aiming to encourage women to up their self PR game, #SheStandsOut launched in 2018 is the brain-child of Mikaela Rice who will also be hosting the event panel.
