Fast Company has published its list of 60 women who are changing the world. Most have much loftier goals than creative departments (hats off to them), but here are a few that are really relevant to us:
Allessandra Lariu, Cofounder of SheSays.
Lariu’s site & network reaches to 20 different cities around the globe and works to connect female creatives with jobs, mentors and workshops. They put on some really great events - we’ve been fans for a while now.
Jennifer Siebel Newsom, Founder & CEO of MissRepresentation.org
Siebel Newsom wrote & directed the 2011 documentary Miss Representation, which dives into the role of the media in perpetuating a negative image of women and girls. Her site is now a hub for media issues related to women, and the film has been screened in over 47 countries after premiering at Sundance in 2011.
