Recent research has found that despite 70% of graphic design students in the UK being women, only 11% made it to creative director level.
Kerning The Gap is a collective of like-minded people who want to see more women in design leadership roles, hear their voices and be inspired to create change. By shedding light on the issues women face in the industry they hope to encourage design businesses across the UK to channel gender equality in the workplace.
One way the group do this is by running an annual mentor programme which Kino is currently taking part in. We really recommend the Kerning the Gap podcasts – a selection of focussed and inspirational discussions filled with insights and tips – and not just for women.
