Where have all the women gone?

Published on Sunday, 16th September 2018

Come and join us for an important conversation: Kerning The Gap; October 9th at Kinneir Dufort in Bristol...

Where have all the women gone?

70% of design students are female, yet only 11% are in creative director roles!

Nat Maher (CEO Pollit & Partners) founded Kerning The Gap in 2015 to acknowledge and highlight the severe shortage of women in senior leadership roles, across the design industry and to discover why and how we can collectively change this.

Kerning The Gap is now a collective of like-minded people who want to see more women in creative and design leadership roles, hear their voices and be inspired to create change. Whether you’re an aspiring leader, or one of the amazing women that have pushed through the gap, we want to build a community to provoke discussion, provide inspiration and, more importantly, turn it into positive action.

Kinneir Dufort is enabling Kerning The Gap to roll out regionally and is reaching out to local businesses in the South West to get everyone involved in this conversation.

To kick things off, we invite you to attend ‘Kerning The Gap: The Conversation’ in Bristol.

You will hear from an expert panel consisting of Nat Maher herself, Merle Hall (CEO of KD), Chris Thurling (Executive Chairman, Armadillo & Chair, Bristol Media), Fiz Yazdi (Managing Director, CXPartners) and Craig Wightman (Chief Design Officer, KD).

The panel will answer your questions, whilst sharing their personal experiences and will debate how we can create change to encourage equality in the creative and design industries.

Please come along and participate in this important and vital conversation...
