The problem statement isn’t news: Design is homogenous.
While situational changes may be made through better outreach, advertising, and recruitment, addressing the systemic issues surrounding this homogeny will allow us to approach fundamental questions as ‘how should history inform how we frame the problem to be solved today?’
Join Nina Narelle and Katie Augsburger, co-founders of Future Work Design as they explore how systems of inequity are in fact, the results of historic, and contemporary, design. They’ll share provocative and actionable ways we can rethink our approach to the design of our organizations, our lives, and our identities, in a way that supports and enables a more equitable society, in which design belongs to all of us.
Future Work Design (FWD) is an organizational design and strategy firm, imbuing the conversation of diversity, equity, and inclusion with both the optimism, empathy, and curiosity that design work is founded on, and approaching organizational change through the lens of collaborative design.
Join us the morning of March 29th at JE Dunn to learn how to overcome the organizational structures that have been deeply complicit in upholding patriarchal systems.
$10 tickets in advance, $15 at the door. This is a cash-free event. Doors open at 8:30 am, presentation begins at 9:00 am. Breakfast will be served.
