We provide opportunities for established professionals to give back and help others by teaching, mentoring, and guiding young women through their early career development. Hopefully, this process will create more empowered women who will be encouraged to give back.

what’s our story

Do you believe in the power of design? We do!

We at the Woland Foundation are investing tremendous time, experience, and passion into the next generation of designers. It is our mission to mentor, guide, and support students and young professionals as they transition into the workforce, ensuring that they find greater success than those who preceded them.

Women are often overlooked in the professional world and many women, especially within the design field, are leaving the specialty in which they studied or the workforce altogether. We believe young women entering their professional careers are the key to breaking this cycle. By creating better designers with long-lasting careers, they can inspire and design a better world for everyone.

The Woland Foundation provides opportunities for established professionals to give back and help others by teaching, mentoring, and guiding young women through their early career development. Hopefully, this process will create more empowered women who will be encouraged to give back in the same way, thus forming a cycle of helping the next generation of designers.
