Design Milk X Modenus Talks: Building Balance: Culture, Context & Inclusion in Design
Date & Time
Sunday, May 21, 2017, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
International Women’s Day is a time to reflect and celebrate balance, equality, diversity and opportunity in our lives and our industries. On this day, in 2017, OTHR surveyed the industrial design landscape and noticed that while there is a breadth and diversity of talent, we have a long way to go to build proper balance and representation. This raises the question: how do we, as individuals and as an industry, begin to identify and solve this problem? Join Kate McTigue of OTHR, Jaime Derringer of Design Milk, Patrizia Moroso of Moroso, Jean Lin of Colony, Alyse Archer-Coite of A/D/O and Mimi Hoang of nARCHITECTS for a discussion on the value and need for a more diverse design ecosystem. Professionals and enthusiasts alike will walk away with a deeper understanding of the value of a more diverse industry and actionable tools to do our part in shifting the landscape of design.
