Join us for an in-depth dive into the Diversity & Inclusion topic of ethnicity and race as it relates to Design in our modern world. The discussion will be lead by Maurice Cherry, Editor-in-Chief of Revision Path and Deanna Clark, AIGA Atlanta’s Diversity & Inclusion Chair. The first hour, we will begin with introductions and icebreakers. We will devote the rest of the workshop to learning, discussions and how to use the tools acquired to impact our community. Our goal is for every attendee to have the opportunity to participate and share.
