Time15:00 – 16:30 BST

Presented in partnership with Teknion, UK during Clerkenwell Design Week.

Power Women of Design (PWD) is a series of round table organised by WOD in various countries to highlight the work and the status of women in the workplace design industry. The idea is to highlight the journey and story of women leaders that can inspire others.

WOD (Women in Office Design) in partnership with Teknion UK, presents this conversation with four incredible and accomplished women leaders in London, who are making waves in the design world. The panel will explore the varied issues faced by women in the design industry and offer insights into the challenges, successes, and journey that got them where they are today. They will share some engaging & fascinating work stories and samples of their works.

It is encouraging to read reports and statistics that women are better and empathetic leaders. In that context let’s explore how each of our speakers can frame an event or situation where as a woman you could make a positive impact and achieve exceptional results. Additionally, with the future of workplace being heavily debated in the current environment, as women leaders is it time for us to work towards a more inclusive and gender-neutral office design?
