More females than males study creatives arts subjects, but a smaller proportion of women go into creative jobs after graduation. Why is this happening and how can universities and employers promote change?
The creative arts play a significant part in the UK economy, contributing billions of pounds and creating millions of jobs.
How do we make changes in the creative industry that will encourage women to dive in feet first and make their career dreams come true? Women in this industry have to be loud. No Louder. Make themselves known to other women starting out; write articles, sit on panels and go to events where they can show that it is possible for women to be in these positions of power, own their own business and challenge the system.
Our effervescent host Carol Ann Whitehead CMgr CCMI, fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, co-founder of creative industry agency The Zebra Partnership has gathered together a sterling selection from her little black book of inspirational women for our event.
