Event description

Description

Join AIGA Boston and WeWork for the first in a series of panel discussions exploring the need for diversity in design.

African American Culture is a powerful force driving innovation in the arts, music, fashion, etc. Diversity is widely recognized as a source of creative energy and success in business and problem solving; the very things that Design is meant to deliver, yet the Design industry continues to struggle to reflect the broader society.

Weve invited a panel of accomplished and insightful African American designers to share their thoughts on design creativity, cultural perspective and what we have to gain from broader representation in the Design Industry.

  • What are we missing when a range of perspectives go unrepresented in the design process?

  • What unique challenges must be overcome to increase African American representation in Design?

  • What can we, as individuals and as a community, do to champion diversity?

  • Whats missing from diversity and inclusion efforts?

Fees:
This event is free and open to the public.

Shani Sandy, Executive Creative Director at S&P Global
Chaz Maviyane-Davies, Designer, Activist, Educator
Sabrina Dorsainvil, Civic Designer & Program Director at Mayor’s Office of New Urban Mechanics
