Ladies, Wine & Design is a global non-profit initiative with chapters in 280 cities worldwide. It was founded in 2015 by Jessica Walsh with a mission to see more diversity in the creative industry, especially within leadership roles.
Ladies, Wine & Design Athens was launched in March 2020 by Juliet Kampasi. In Greece, we see a great lack of data on gender equality in the creative industry. However, with a simple Google search one can see that the percentage of women in senior positions is very small. LWDAthens wants to help change that through a series of events that include mentoring circles, portfolio reviews, workshops, talks and creative meetups. Our events are inclusive and supportive spaces for all women (trans, intersex and cis) and all nonbinary, agender and gender variant people. Self-definition is at the sole discretion of that individual. We also believe that men can be important allies in our shared goal to workplace equality and women empowerment and so they are welcome to partake in our activities.
Finally, we aim to support and promote the work of talented women that shape the creative industry of Athens and Greece, in general, so we follow the global campaign #WomanToWatch. Every month, we use our social media to promote the work of talented Greek women. Follow us on Instagram and Facebook
