A follow-up to the “One in Ten” panel discussion produced in January. Will aim to dive deeper into the subject of gender equality in design. We will be continuing the conversation with a second panel of female creatives working in advertising, publishing, UX, and film.

Women outnumber men as design school graduates, yet only make up 11% of creative directors in advertising. Led by Tina Essmaker of The Great Discontent, our panelists will discuss the #metoo era of gender politics, tactics, and support systems that have helped them overcome gender bias and how they achieved leadership positions in today’s challenging landscape.


  • Tina Essmaker is a New York­ based coach, writer, and interviewer. She is co-founder of the publication The Great Discontent for which she interviewed more than 250 notable creators.


  • Jessica Brillhart is a film director who is wildly known for her pioneering work in virtual reality. She’s the founder of the independent immersive studio, Vrai Pictures, and is a director for M ss ng P eces.
