Breaking into the industry
This International Women’s day, join the team of SheSays as they delve into the different ways to break into the creative industry through a panel discussion and a collaborative workshop.
The pandemic has taken a toll on women in the creative industries pushing the gender pay gap even wider than before. Which is why it’s so important for more women to break into the creative industry.
Are you struggling to get your foot in the door? Have you always wondered how other people got started? Or are you just starting out? Kickstart your journey into the creative industry with the SheSays team, Erin Aniker and Natalie Narh as they discuss their highs and lows breaking into their industries followed by a workshop. We will conclude the event with a chance to network with other fellow creatives.
