Join on Zoom!
Join President Sanjit Sethi for the inaugural Race and Design: President's Annual Lecture Series at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. Two sessions are being offered: one specifically for students and one open to the public. Students are encouraged to attend the earlier forum.
Greg Hoffman '92 (former Chief Marketing Officer at Nike) will moderate a candid, lively discussion between design leaders Joseph Kunkel (MASS Design Group) and Liz Ogbu (Studio O).
While the design field impacts the entire global population, the decision-makers operate from a mostly white, Eurocentric perspective. Though change is occurring slowly, racism is still deeply embedded in design practices and products. This lecture series engages three internationally recognized creative leaders in direct conversation about racism and inequity in the design field. Hoffman, Kunkel, and Ogbu will begin to imagine how the field could be more inclusive, more responsive to the communities it serves, and ultimately, more successful.
