Where have all the women gone?
70% of design students are female - 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, to discover why and what can be done collectively to change this.
Kerning The Gap is now a collective of like-minded people who want to see more women in creative, digital 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."
Uniform, in partnership with Design Leaders from Kinneir Dufort and Unilever, is enabling Kerning The Gap to roll out to the North West and is reaching out to local businesses to get everyone involved in this conversation.
Through the Kerning The Gap collective there will be changes in our businesses that allow women to grow, encourage one another on the journey, and provide inspiration to the next generation of leaders.
