Women in Lighting (WIL) is a project that has set out to create an inspirational digital platform for women working in lighting to promote their passion and achievements, narrate their career path and goals, celebrate their work and elevate their profile in the lighting community. Although women make up at least 50 percent of the practising designers, their inclusion on judging panels, editorial boards, conferences and as keynote speakers is significantly lower than 50 percent. WIL attempts to change that.

Watch out for the next interview with Gisela Steiger and Maria Asia Sierra (The Light Squad Studio).
