LWD (League of Women Designers) – A member-led forum for women designers who meet to share their thoughts and work through their ideas concerning their professional design practice, process and inspiration.
We are a group of professional designers, all working in slightly different areas of design (architecture, interiors, industrial, design/build, professional artists, fashion designers, professors, graphics, ect).
We meet monthly in Chicago, IL.
The League of Women Designers was established in Portland, Ore., conceived as a means of pooling the minds of creative individuals who happened to be women. There was no agenda; there was no manifesto. It was and still is a forum for women designers to meet, either physically or virtually, to share their thoughts and ideas concerning their professional design practice, process and inspiration.
Fueled by organic growth, the League of Women Designers gained a Chicago chapter in 2011. Like the Portland group, the goal for establishing the League of Women Designers Chicago is to foster a network of like-minded designers: to harness the collective energy that comes from members of the group.
*LWD Chicago and LWD Portland are affiliated, drawing continued inspiration through a transcontinental network.
