Event: NEA Women in Social Impact Design Webinar

Tomorrow afternoon I’m going to be on a panel on women in social impact design run by the NEA and hosted by Katie Swenson of Enterprise Community Partners.

It’s going to be a great conversation–the panelists include Dawn Hancock of Firebelly Design, Liz Ogbu, urbanist and social innovator, Lakshmi Ramarajan of Harvard Business School and myself. We’re going to look at the larger issue of mission as a key component in the lives and practices of female design practitioners, but also how the social impact design field can do a better job at demonstrating and pushing for equity–especially gender equity–in practice.

“What women want and what the profession and society needs should not be in conflict.”

-Katie Swenson

Katie wrote a great blog post previewing the conversation here and I wrote a piece on the view from architecture’s two equity-based movements here.
