Celebrating and fostering women’s achievements in design. Women today outnumber men in AIGA’s membership—as in design schools and disciplines—yet leadership, representation, and parity remain a challenge.

AIGA Women Lead Portland stems from the AIGA Women Lead Initiative which is committed to empowering women in design and advancing the vital discourse on issues facing professional women today without generalizing or segregating women designers. Instead, Women Lead aims to address persistent biases and inequities inclusively and constructively through programming around three goals:

  • Celebrate the achievements of women in design.
  • Cultivate awareness of gender-related issues, while building knowledge and leadership skills.
  • Connect by facilitating relationships within and beyond the design industry.
