The Design + Diversity conference explores proactive ways to make the design industry more diverse. This is the only conference that focuses on diversity issues in the design field. This event provides a platform for constructive conversation among those who design, innovate, and lead. We welcome the perspective of diversity and inclusion professionals, designers, and any active enthusiast.
In this talk, participants will hear how my experiences as a Black queer woman has influenced my passion and dedication to activism through art and design. I will discuss how a continued lack of representation in a system that perpetuates White supremacy has influenced my work towards racial equity and empowerment through my work at Blackbird Revolt and Project Naptural.
