The Design + Diversity Conference

For years the Design + Diversity conference has sought to inspire, celebrate and promote diversity within the design community. As the only conference that explores, not only diversity in design, but the diversity of design, we deliver value to conference attendees by providing topics that span the full breadth of design: from architecture to advertising, user experience to social impact design, and so much more. Additionally, this conference has created a platform for diverse speakers from around the country to present their work, challenge our assumptions and build our knowledge on a wide range of topics. This event provides a safe space for critical conversations among designers, innovators, and leaders. We welcome the perspective of diversity and inclusion professionals, designers, and all enthusiasts or allies.
