CD/DS Faculty member Nina Narelle at Design Museum Mornings
March 25, 2019
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.
