"For The Women" (GWTW251)

Today’s interview episode of Getting Work To Work is the second in a four-part series promoting Design Week Portland, “a week-long, all-inclusive festival celebrating the projects and processes as told by a creative community across many disciplines.” In these interviews, you’ll meet amazing creatives who are not only producing great work, but also giving back and building a community of equality. Learn more about Design Week Portland at DesignPortland.org.

Now that the stage is set, the second group of creatives I would like to introduce you to are Christina Melander, Amanda Grisham, and Natalie Park, who participated in a program called FTW: For The Women, a mentorship and accountability program that was launched at last year’s Design Week Portland. Christina shares about the inspiration and purpose of FTW and why Swift, the agency she works for, took this project on. From there, the conversation shifts to Amanda and Natalie talking about the mentorship process and what they gained from it. This episode is but one shining example of what people get from Design Week Portland.
