This month we will discuss AIGA's Diversity & Inclusion Initiative with special guest, Jacinda Walker, Chairwoman of the Diversity and Inclusion Taskforce with the National AIGA Organization.
Despite progress made over the course of AIGA’s 100-year history, especially since its landmark 1991 symposium (“Why is graphic design 93% white?”), there are vast opportunities to support a more diverse audience of design students, practitioners, managers, thinkers, enthusiasts, clients, consumers, and policy makers.
Recent passionate conversations among AIGA members have catalyzed a new Diversity & Inclusion Initiative to augment ongoing AIGA programs with new ideas and resources that take a comprehensive approach, considering race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, ability and disability, age, and other factors that shape creative perspective and professional experience. Join us to:
- Celebrate a diverse array of influential designers, including historical figures and contemporary role models.
- Cultivate greater opportunity, awareness of diversity issues, and inclusive design cultures.
- Connect with students, emerging designers, and like-minded groups to support a broader range of future practitioners and leaders.
Everyone is welcome to attend! We are very excited to see you there and have some meaningful conversations!
New to the area? New to AIGA? Interested in becoming a member? Ready to get involved? The monthly community meeting is a great place to get started.
