In 2014, AIGA launched its Women's Leadership Initiative to recognize and cultivate women's successes in creative communities. Centered around the goals of celebration, cultivation and connection, each chapter aims to facilitate the conversation about women and leadership in its respective community.

In DFW, we're centering our 2015 initiative around communication. The creative community is great, in size and in quality, and with AIGA DFW's Women's Leadership Initiative (DFWWLI) activities, we hope to make it even greater. Through roundtable discussions, lectures, mentor matchmaking and social forum(s), DFWWLI will engage the community and keep the conversation going and growing.

Since it's the first year for AIGA DFW to take on the initiative, we want to make sure to focus on the quality of our programming rather than quantity. As our initiative advances and community of women — and men — grows, we'll add more. For 2015, our DFWWLI programming is as follows:

April 14, 2015 // AIGA DFW Women's Leadership Roundtables
We don't want to start our initiative with what's expected. Instead, we want to open up our Women's Leadership Initiative with a couple of roundtables, some good food, cocktails and conversation about what we're proud of, what we're experiencing and what we're hoping for in the world of women's leadership.
Admission $15 OR a "Frame of Advice" *

September, 2015 // AIGA DFW Women's Leadership Mentor Matchmaking
Finding a great mentor can be hard. Finding one who might be able to share similar stories, both professionally and personally can be even harder. For the first time ever, AIGA DFW takes our Mentor Matchmaking event and tailors it to focus on advancing the growth of women's leadership in the DFW creative community.
Admission $15 + a potluck dish OR a "Frame of Advice" *

December, 2015 // AIGA DFW Women's Leadership Lecture
Three speakers, one conversation. Mark your calendar now to save the date for what should be a stimulating and engaging discussion about women and leadership in the creative community.
Admission $15 + a potluck dish OR a "Frame of Advice" *

As with all AIGA DFW programming, suggestions are welcome, and we're always looking for passionate creatives to join our efforts. So if you're interested in becoming part of our DFWWLI committee, we'd love to talk.

*Frame of Advice :: We're doing things a little differently. For admission, we'll waive the $15 if you bring a cool frame, displaying a hand-written or typed piece of "advice" for the women in your community. We'll be displaying these throughout the year at our events.
