Featured Session: Building a More Diverse Pipeline of Design Talent
Design leadership has a responsibility to support and uplift the next generation of designers. With the enormous challenges that our society is facing right now, this responsibility becomes even more important—especially when it comes to creating opportunities for underrepresented groups to take part in our industry. Design must evolve and for that to happen, it’s more crucial than ever for new, diverse voices to enter the industry and to flourish. Education is one of the key components to creating this change. In this session Khoi Vinh/Adobe will discuss what it means to grow, support and mentor aspiring designers to access the education they deserve, regardless of their race, ethnicity, gender, age, economic or cultural background, and despite any challenges they’re facing. He will be joined by a recent scholarship award winner from the Adobe Design Circle to share what they are working on and how their backgrounds play a part in their design creation.
