Join AIGA Portland for the launch of Women In Design—our new event series supporting the AIGA Women’s Leadership Initiative, celebrating and fostering women’s achievements in design.
The first in this series will be an informal gathering of women and men in our design community. We’ll socialize, have some of Enso’s fabulous wine, and meet a host of talented female entrepreneurs discussing their work, experiences, and selling their wares. You’ll be able to speak one-on-one with each vendor, as well as the AIGA board. We’ll discuss future Women In Design events and what it means to support female designers and makers. Men are encouraged to be a part of this important conversation.
This event series aims to:
- 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.
