CHARLESTON, SC (FOX 24 NEWS NOW) — In today’s digital world, the design industry is growing by leaps and bounds.

But while the field expands — the number of women working in it is not.

Just 11 percent of creative directors were women last year, and a design council survey revealed they only accounted for 40 percent of design professionals.

Ladies, Wine and Design, a national group, is helping close this gap, and it has a chapter right here in the Holy City.

Courtney Rowson, creative director and co-owner of SDCO Partners, stopped by to share what the Charleston chapter is doing to help local women creatives.
