Diversity in Design: Storytelling Mixer

We're launching the Diversity in Design networking group into the Portland community at large!

This event allows us to educate, support, and inspire.

Our goal is to raise awareness that there actually are professionals of color in the design industries, and they’re doing awesome work right here in town. We want to communicate to attendees who we are as a group and as professionals. We also want to bring professionals of color together to build each other’s networks and support each other in our career paths.

This event is a chance for us build on our momentum and membership in order to develop future programming that supports things like mentorship for kids and students of color that are interested in our respective professions.

Event Details:

Guest speakers will be professionals of color in a range of design fields here in Portland. They will share stories about their work and their experiences in their profession. Presented in a panelist format, stories will focus on an uplifting message and can highlight either personal experiences and/or projects that have been meaningful or made a positive impact on the speakers, to society as a whole and/or to local communities of color.
