Think of it like maker therapy: hands-on, in the flow, creating beauty. Past creative workshops have included hand lettering, shibori dying, patch making, and wall hangings.
Accessible to all experience levels, guided yoga and meditation are grounding practices that bring everyone into their bodies and create a shared foundation for the day.
Our evening chats are open and vulnerable conversations on topics that are familiar yet rarely spoken about with such candor. We invite a handful of design leaders to kick off each night’s discussion based on their experience with the topic at hand, such as belonging, resilience and authenticity.
Like the majority of the tech industry, design suffers from a lack of inclusive and diverse organizations. Research shows how bias results in discrimination in educating, hiring, promoting, paying, and funding underrepresented people in tech. However, research shows that diversity increases success.
The goal of the Within Diversity Fellowship is to increase inclusion in design by providing educational opportunities more broadly.
