LW&D – Portland, Maine
Welcome to the Portland, Maine chapter of Ladies Wine & Design.
Ladies*, Wine** & Design is a global non-profit initiative with chapters in 280 cities worldwide with the Portland, Maine chapter organized by our founder and run by the team at Pulpandwire.
LW&D was founded in 2015 by Jessica Walsh after the realization that .1% of creative agencies are founded by women & non-binary people, and the numbers are even smaller for women/non-binary BIPOC. Our mission is to see more diversity in the creative industry, especially within leadership roles. LW&D takes an intersectional approach to this work. We offer free mentorship circles, portfolio reviews, talks & creative meetups for underrepresented creatives. Learn more at: ladieswinedesign.com
*Our space is inclusive of all women, non-binary, agender, and gender non-conforming people. Self-definition is at the sole discretion of that individual. If you feel you could benefit from a space meant for people who do not identify as cis men to share ideas and collaborate, you are welcome.
**Alcohol is entirely optional; you can drink tea, coffee, or whatever you like!
