Put on by AIGA Seattle
Join AIGA Seattle for a roundtable and panel discussions on gender equity in the workplace.
AIGA Seattle’s Women Lead Initiative aims to educate, inspire, and empower women and other creative professionals by constructively addressing persistent workplace biases and inequities. In Their Shoes is a half day workshop that will bring together design leaders and foster discussions about inclusive work environments, empathy, and diversity in leadership. Together we will examine the sources of our struggles and successes, and gain insights for building more diverse and inclusive environments moving forward.
The event will feature a variety of roundtable discussions guided by AIGA’s Gender Equity Toolkit followed by a Q&A panel composed of thought leaders from across Seattle's creative industry. Topics will include battling implicit bias, overcoming invisible barriers, and understanding one another through empathy-building activities. EVERYONE is encouraged to attend this important workshop regardless of gender. Let’s gather together to combat preconceived notions and gender stereotypes, and practice professional inclusion.
We expect lively discussion at this event and may touch on sensitive topics. Moderators will be present throughout to ensure group discussions are respectful and inclusive.
