The Event

In honor of Black History month you are invited to join us for our inaugural Diversity in Design Town Hall. This will include a moderated panel discussion as well as active participation, and dialogue with the wider design community.

AIGA/NY Diversity in Design: cALL for Ideas is a series of events open to the entire NYC design community to discuss, refine, and incubate ideas on how to solve the most pressing issues of exclusivity, bias, privilege, and inequity in our own profession.

AIGA/NY believes that diversity is essential to excellence, achievement, and creative innovation. Through our Diversity & Inclusion programming and initiatives, we aim to foster the culture of inclusion in which all individuals feel respected and are treated fairly, and different viewpoints, opinions, thoughts, and ideas are encouraged and embraced.
