Impacting the Design Profession: Case Studies from a Non-Traditional Educator
with Jacinda Walker

Friday, April 30, 3:30 p.m. EST
Join Zoom Meeting

Designers solve problems. And every day these problem-solvers use their abilities to think critically for big corporations and small organizations. But did you know those same abilities can solve problems within the design profession? Are you ready to make an impact, but not sure where or how to get started? Join Jacinda Walker, founder and creative director of designExplorr, a social impact organization whose mission addresses the diversity gap within the design profession. Jacinda’s presentation will unpack the root of the problem, explain the need for more inclusive design education resources, and present ways designers can impact the profession.
