Event description

Description

Join an intimate group of women and non-binary design leaders from a variety of backgrounds for a day of inspiration and connection. Throughout our time together, we’ll share our dreams and push the boundaries of what it means to be a leader in design as we collectively shape our future.

Industry luminaries will inspire experienced leaders with presentations on leading in design and life, heart-centered leadership, and more while rising leaders will glean insights on how to uncover our unique leadership styles, how to evolve our portfolios from designer to leader, and more.

All leaders will enjoy lunch and drinks together and we’ll spend time connecting through small group creative activities to share challenges/opportunities with one another.

This event is intended to build meaningful connections within our community and is limited to only a handful of seats.

About WILD

We believe that through community we can empower underrepresented women and non-binary persons in the field of design. Our goal is to close the gender gap and make sure every person feels supported to be the design leader they aspire to be or already are. WILD is an initiative of AIGA SF.
