The Design + Diversity Conference explores proactive ways to make the design and creative industry more diverse, inclusive, and equitable.
About this Event
Join us online for the 5 year celebration of the Design + Diversity Conference— the conference which inspires, celebrates and promotes not only diversity in design, but the diversity of design.
Each year we focus on the themes of:
- Using creative practice to address social ills and systems of oppression through Social Justice
- Using creative craft to meet the needs of specific identities through Designing Diversity
- Developing a collective acumen of Traditional Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Additionally, this conference has created a platform for diverse speakers from around the country to present their work, challenge our assumptions and build our knowledge on a wide range of topics. This event provides a safe space for critical conversations among designers, innovators, and leaders. We welcome the perspective of diversity, equity, and inclusion professionals, designers, and all enthusiasts or allies.
