Hidden women of design
Roundtable | YCN Rivington Rooms — For our members and programme participants

On 3rd April we'll host an evening roundtable session with Lorna Allan, the founder of Hidden Women of Design.

"It can be exciting to discover hidden things – a nice little bar round the corner, a fiver between your receipts – but not when it’s the work of amazing female designers that changed the course of design history, that many of us haven’t heard of." HWOD

Lorna Allan started Hidden Women of Design in 2016, as a series of talks that aimed to raise the profile of female graphic designers. Faced with a male-dominated industry, she hoped to start a conversation about gender equality in design. Today they run workshops, talks and meet-ups to support women at every stage of career, from students to creative directors.

In this evening roundtable session, Lorna, along with designers Ashley Evans and Anoushka Khandwala, will open up a discussion around experiences of women in the creative industries, and in particular, women of colour. Women still hold a small percentage of roles at senior level in the creative industries; only 12% of creative directors are female, while at C-suites levels 30.9% are female with 4.7% being from black, asian or minority-ethnic backgrounds.

With this in mind, we're bringing together a group of 10 designers, agency owners, creative directors and design educators to discuss diversity and inclusion in the design industry. We'll be listening and sharing experiences to help us learn, raise awareness and extend the conversation to a wider audience, asking ourselves how we can initiate ways to make the creative industries more diverse and inclusive.
