S1E4 – Anna McCambridge | Leading and Supporting Women

Anna McCambridge is a designer and illustrator for the LPGA, an artist, and the women lead initiative director for AIGA Orlando. Today’s episode is all about how to serve, lead, and elevate others with a focus on supporting women and wellness.

In this episode, we talk about life titles and what the Orlando creative community was like when she was entering the creative industry. Then we take a deep dive into what the women leadership initiative is, why it matters, and how it’s not just for women.

There’s enough room for all of us to lead and if you give others opportunities to lead, that’s how we help each other to rise up.

Everything that Anna describes when discussing women raising up other women is exactly what she has done for me. She encouraged me, she celebrated my talents, and gave me an opportunity to lead when she nominated me to join the AIGA Orlando board in 2019. I have a lot of gratitude for what she has done for me personally. And if she hadn’t, then I wouldn’t be here right now writing a blog to publish alongside this podcast!
