63% of graphic design festival speakers are men

When starting this project this was always something @brieffestival founder, Gloria, had realised from the start.

When contacting speakers for the festival she found that women were more likely to turn down this type of opportunity because they felt uncomfortable, so much more than men.

After some further research, we started counting women vs men speakers in the major European design festivals that took place during 2020 and confirmed this fact.

How is it that in 2022 there is still a majority of male speakers at design festivals?
