DCDT Talk: Diversity in Design

Just in time for the Detroit Month of Design, The Detroit Center for Design + Technology welcomes the public join in for a special edition of DCDT Talk on September 19. The bi-monthly speaker series will turn its focus to the ways in which businesses can foster growth and diversity in design.

Moderator Karen Evans will ask how the design industry meets the needs of  professionals who represent a wide variety of backgrounds. We’ll dig deep into this important topic, DCDT Talk: Diversity in Design will explore the ways the design industry addresses differences in race, gender, sexual identity and ability – and what work is yet to be done.
