The IDI  are working on a gender balance initiative for the Irish Design Sector. The first of its kind in Ireland. Aimed at second level female designers, their parents, teachers and guidance councillors. The site will inform what design actually is, cover the design careers available and include all the third creative design courses in the country.

A large element of this project is to showcase practicing female designers from all disciplines based in Ireland - Allowing these inspiring role models share their journey and insights into the industry. It will be a living project with female designers from all around Ireland added monthly. The launch night is on March 8th – International Women’s Day. Where we will be having Oscar winning designer Annie Atkins an & Emmy Award Winning designer Chris Do launch the platform and to top it off, MC’D by the brilliantly funny Aoife Dooley.
