To celebrate International Women’s Day 2021, Design District is joining forces with SheSays London, part of a global community of over 70,000 creative women. Together, we’re giving away six pairs of mentoring sessions with SheSays co-founder Alessandra Lariu, a creative industries leader.
Successful applicants will each receive two 30 minute sessions (or one hour-long session). If there’s a particular professional challenge you’re facing, this is a great opportunity to discuss appropriate strategies and tools — consider it a career bootcamp!
Alessandra Lariu co-founded SheSays in 2007, building a community across 55 cities and bringing activism and advocacy to international clients. With a background in marketing, advertising and experience design, her latest project confronts the challenges presented by Covid head-on with the launch of a new platform: Women with Epic Ideas (WEI). She has previously been included in Fast Company’s ‘League of Extraordinary Women’ (along with Hillary Clinton and Oprah Winfrey) and has received over 18 global industry awards.
