Women in Office Design at Design Festival North

WOD at Design Festival North

We are thrilled to announce our partnership with WOD (Women in Office Design) – a global networking group for women in the workplace design industry.

Founded by interior designer Harsha Kotak in May 2018, Women in Office Design is a platform for architects, designers, manufacturers and dealers, specifiers, space planners and workplace strategists from around the world to connect, share knowledge and discuss ideas within a dedicated design community.

With chapters in the UK, Europe and India and over 2000+ WOD members and growing, Women in Office Design warmly welcomes individuals, companies and groups who are looking to connect with dynamic design professionals. WOD events range from fun collaborative workshops, seminars and talks about industry related topics that support educational and professional growth.

Harsha noticed the disparity in numbers of women executives in the workplace design industry and these statistics were surprising, if not disconcerting.

She questioned, what do we want our industry to look like in the future and how do we get there? Harsha recognised the urgent need for a strong network that can support and foster women’s career growth in the industry. A unique environment where women can inspire and get inspired, and where idols become accessible mentors.

In 2020, WOD launched “WOD Digital” – an online platform for Community, Academy & Events.

This app-based platform lets WOD members engage in open conversation amongst the community, giving direct access to make business contacts. It is a community where you can expand your network, seek new opportunities, upskill and learn from industry experts through WOD’s academy courses and workshops.
