Building a Culture of Inclusion: Perspectives & Possibilities

The importance of diversity in the design industry cannot be stressed enough. A diverse creative team allows for different perspectives that generate a broader variety of ideas. Along with diversifying our creative teams, the work we create needs to be more inclusive of the diversity seen in our target audiences.

While we have seen improvement over the years, there is still a lot of work to be done to fully embrace diversity of all kinds. We must continue to bring awareness and encourage conversations about diversity and inclusiveness, both in our schools and our workplaces.
