SheSays is a group dedicated to knowledge sharing, inspiration and networking for women in (digital) advertising. Started by two women creatives in London, SheSays is now also present in New York. With meetings each month hosted at agencies all over the city, speakers present on a myriad of topics that cater to all aspects of the industry. With a mentorship program to boot, it's a great way for women in the industry, or looking to get into the industry, to establish valuable relationships for their own career development. And it's not just focused on creatives. Speakers have included women who work in Planning, Account and the advertising press. They've also ranged from entrepreneurs who've successfully started their own businesses to those women sitting in upper management of some of the world's most well-respected marketing companies.
I'll be speaking at the next SheSays New York event next week, hosted at LBi in The Puck Building. Topic: Jobs of the Future. For me, it's a perfect forum to talk about Interaction Design + Creative Direction. As well as other 'hybrid' jobs and career opportunities I see happening around us. If you have ideas, let me know. And if you'd like to attend (sorry, gentlemen!), RSVP now. The event is free.
