6:00 p.m., Wednesday, February 27th at Hotel 1000.
Women are a huge part of the workforce in the creative services industry yet recent reports indicate that for all their effort and accomplishments women are dramatically underrepresented in power positions, making up just 3-4% of agency creative leaders.
We've assembled some of Seattle's successful creative women who have been there and done that to tell us about their hiccups and accomplishments as they have navigated their careers in the industry.
Join us for an honest discussion about topics including:
- Why is it important that women have better representation in the creative departments of advertising agencies?
- What keeps women from getting into the creative side? Does the perception of a men's club mentality keep them out?
- Do you have to be a bitch?
- Is motherhood a career killer?
- Are we in this together?
- Women can't do this alone. How can men help?
Mary Knight - Executive Creative Director, Hydrogen
