The Power of Diversity In Design
Hosted by IxDA Toronto
Join us as we celebrate the inaugural "World Interaction Design Day" with a thought-provoking keynote and panel discussion, alongside drinks, canapés, and conversation. We will take this celebration as an opportunity to challenge ourselves to think more deeply about the role of diversity in driving great design and how design and designers can be more inclusive of those whose backgrounds, experiences, and mental models differ from their own.
Join us for drinks, appetizers, a presentation followed by a panel discussion.
