Here at ULS, we celebrate women from all walks of life and profession every day.
There’s an abundance of inspirational women in the world of the arts, marketing, and entrepreneurship. Their contributions in their chosen fields can’t simply be overlooked because they helped reshape the way we perceive women’s roles and have paved the way for the next generation of women.
You’ve seen her work in magazines, museums, and your friends’ social media posts. Yayoi Kusama is known for her avant-garde art installations and paintings. She’s widely recognized for her “infinity installations,” famously seen at The Broad, which uses large scale mirrors that create infinite neon-colored spaces.
Fearless, creative, and daring are some adjectives that describe Kusama and her significance in the art world. She challenges societal norms both in Japan and the United States. She uses art as her vessel to show the world her experiences.
You know when they say not all superheroes wear capes? Kathryn Finney is one of those heroes.
Finney is one of the most influential entrepreneurs, investors, social media advocates, and writers, in the past decade. And in 2012, she founded digitalundivided, a non-profit startup that connects “data and heart” to create programs that propel economic growth in underrepresented communities. The non-profit provides real-life solutions through networking, coaching, and fund building for Black and Latinx communities.
Alongside her White House Champion of Change, Finney is listed in Marie Claire’s 10 Women to Watch in 2016, Entrepreneurs Magazine’s Woman to Watch in 2016, Ebony Power 100, SXSW Black Innovator Award, and Black Enterprise “40 under 40” list.
If you haven’t heard of Jessica Walsh yet, you will today! Walsh is one of the biggest talents in the realm of graphic design. Interning under Paula Scher at Pentagram and working at Print Magazine honed and perfected Walsh’s style and esthetic. In 2019, she started her own agency &Walsh.
Jessica Walsh’s artistry shines best when design is juxtaposed with strong cultural commentaries on society. Walsh’s “Ladies Wine & Design” is a unique global initiative that encourages women or non-binary in the creative world to collaborate and create rather than compete.
