Womentor is a mentorship program for women in graphic design that launched on International Women's Day 2018. It is an independent initiative founded and run by Mirella Marie, founder and creative director of Melbourne-based brand and design studio Vertigo.
Womentor provides women in the graphic design industry support and guidance for business and career development by bringing together senior designers with creative directors and design company partners and co-founders.
While there are many excellent programs available to students, graduates, and junior designers, assistance for women in senior design roles is sorely lacking. Womentor exists to help bridge this gap.
