Race and Design: Presidential Lecture Series

Student Event
Lecture:
Wednesday, October 27
Add to Calendar
1:00-2:00 p.m.

How can we address race and racism inside and outside the design world? 

How can practitioners and company structures be more responsive to the communities it serves, and ultimately, more successful? 

Join MCAD President Sanjit Sethi for the second annual Race & Design: President’s Annual Lecture Series. President Sethi will moderate a candid discussion with creative thought leaders Amanda Huynh and Rosemary Ugboajah on racism and inequity in the design field. 

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. The aim of the Race & Design series is to imagine how the field could be more inclusive, more responsive to the communities it serves, and ultimately, more successful.
