Design for Good: Exploring Diversity

Online ticket sales will close at 12pm, November 7. Tickets will be available at the door.


Design for Good: Exploring Diversity
Gather to discover how the Chicago design community experiences diversity. We’ll hear personal stories from local designers that illuminate their challenges and triumphs before engaging in dynamic discussion around what more can be done to promote and celebrate diversity in the workplace. We hope this conversation will foster greater understanding and compassion within the city’s design community.
