AIGA/NY Diversity in Design Roundtable # 2

Recently, I attended AIGA/NY's second roundtable discussion to discuss diversity in design. Due to the weather, the crowd was smaller then the facilitators expected but the group that came out was passionate to discuss what are the issues that are keeping design not as diverse as it could be and what are possible things that could be done to make it diverse.

I listened as those around me shared stories, and wrote out stickies regarding barriers and possible solutions. It is important to talk these things out. As a creative community, the design community should reflect a diversity of people and ideas. I look forward to discovering how we can begin to test and implement solutions.
