women creatives rise

Where do you C yourself?


As women, we know that there are a myriad of issues that aren't usually faced by our male counterparts. While many of us work to overcome these biases and barriers, too often the narrative is focused solely on the negative.


We saw opportunity here to shift the focus: rather than hone in on the struggles that befall us, our aim this International Women's Day is to invoke change, empower, and inspire women creatives to continue to create amazing work.


This year's #CCIWD2022 has been curated to cut across a cross-section of professions. We shine a light on a formidable list of 11 women creators with different backgrounds, experience levels and capabilities who weigh in on the future of creative work. We'll be rolling out for the rest of March, so check back every other day as we tell a different story with a new video interview. 


We hope to C even more of you women rise, with a future-facing mindset for all.
