I’m a Badass Gal

Wonderful news – I was nominated to be included on Young Creative Council’s Badass Gal list! I have been named alongside a bunch of badass women who are making waves in the creative industry, including one of my best friends and badass art director, Emilia Buggins who is on this list too.

A little more on Badass Gal:

Badass.gal is a platform creative advertising duo Charlotte Hugh and Danny Pallett set up after realising the noticeable difference between the number of young women studying creative subjects VS those working in full time employment within the creative industry.

As regular speakers at universities, schools and colleges across the UK through their work with The Young Creative Council, Hugh & Pallett noticed that the classrooms and lecture theatres they were speaking in were full of ambitious young women, yet the industry they were working in was lacking them. Approximately 60%* of creative students are female, but only 30%* end up working full-time in the creative industry. (Stats courtesy of the amazing Creative Equals)

So on International Women’s Day 2018 the pair set up Badass.gal in hope to change these stats.

The platform elevates a different young, female creative every single day who is doing something amazing regardless of their “years experience”. Whether they’re already making inspiring, award winning work or have set up their own creative focused business. From copywriters to art directors, illustrators to technologists – the site showcases some of the very best female creative talent from across the globe.

Badass.gal is run entirely through nominations, so the site relies on industry leaders to nominate young women in their teams, University lecturers to nominate their students & anyone who knows a Badass Gal, or indeed is a Badass Gal, to follow suit.
