About Women Lead:

The AIGA Women Lead Initiative 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, we aim to address persistent biases and inequities inclusively and constructively through programming around three goals:

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