We’re seeking several Women in Leadership & Design (WILD) volunteers to join our growing team. WILD is an initiative that AIGA San Francisco launched in 2018 and has been mostly dormant due to the pandemic. We started re-engaging the community in 2022 through casual meetups, have since relaunched our brand on the aigasf.org site and across social media, and we plan to be much more active this year!

What makes what we do different from other women-led organizations in the creative industry?

Our mission is to amplify women and non-binary designers’ collective power and visibility. We mobilize and energize impact in design leadership by focusing our work on connecting, elevating, sharing, and educating designers in our community. Often, we do this through events like group meals, speaker series, workshops, meetups, and more. We exist to redesign leadership, together.

Being a WILD volunteer would mean a commitment of about ~3-5hrs/month (minimum), and you’d get to:

  • Collaborate with all WILD Leads to achieve sub-committee projects and goals, by driving on and executing specific tasks
  • Shape an ownable and rich body of programming and editorial experiences for WILD
  • Attend committee meetings and WILD events
  • Contribute and engage at WILD events when possible
  • Promote WILD events and editorial through your network/channels
  • Join our slack community
  • Looking specifically for self-identifying women and nonbinary leaders to apply, with a focus on BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ candidates. You need to be Bay Area-based, although we are open to remote participation as long as you’re able to join our meetings on Pacific Time.

    Open roles include:

  • Committee Co-Chair (with the interest to take over as Chair eventually)
  • Editorial Co-Lead (with the interest to take over the Lead role eventually)
  • Art Director
  • Designer
  • Writer (both copywriters + former journalists preferred)
  • Editor (for copy mainly)
  • Motion Designer / Animator
  • Project Manager
  • Event Producer
  • If you’re keen to join the team, please fill out the application form indicating the role(s) you’re interested in or email us at wild@aigasf.org. We look forward to hearing from you!
