Cre8con Workshop - Agents of Change: On Women-led Creative Culture

Agents of Change: On Women-led Creative Culture

In this workshop, Agents of Change: On Women-led Creative Culture, our panel of 5 bold and passionate female creative agency owners and leaders (see details below) discuss their approach to fostering a more meaningful, and genuine internal culture and environment where creatives can thrive and do good, fulfilling work.

Hear about their path to clarity of mission and values and how that led each to become a certified B-Corp*. They’ll share their stories and insights about the opportunities, challenges, and surprises of running a creative agency focused on doing good and making a positive impact in the world. How and why did they make the leap? How did they create buy-in from their teams? How does their studio culture now feel different? What tips can they share from their journey?

Lindsey Charlet - HUB Collective

Lindsey Charlet
Owner and Creative Director at HUB Collective and AIGA

In 2004, Lindsey took a risk on an idea— to try to create a workplace that was based on doing things differently. She saw that the corporate model was broken and gave it her all to try to carve a new path.

Working daily to foster a culture of vulnerability, where people are empowered to lead with what is important to them, is a challenge in the best sense of the word. It takes risk and failure. This philosophy paved the way for HUB to find its purpose. To use our creative smarts to help make the world a better place.
