Women in Design Deep Dive

Two years ago, IDSA launched our series of Women in Design events. A gathering that celebrates the unique talents, initiatives and challenges of women in the industrial design industry. It’s a welcoming environment, bringing together both men and women to network and learn about the struggles and accomplishments of working in an industry predominantly (and historically) lead by males. Now more than ever, our ability to innovate is influenced by the personal connections we make, so events like this are a critical step towards disrupting decades-old patterns and establishing a new, more inclusive design industry. 

This year we are excited to continue our Women in Design program with the 2019 event taking place Friday, May 3rd in San Francisco, California at the world headquarter offices of Dolby Laboratories.

IDSA is proud to serve as a facilitator of these conversations, inviting designers from across the nation to discuss today’s most crucial issues while collaborating on ways to make a positive impact in our industry. Our composition and community value are strengthened by elevating voices from divergent backgrounds, experiences and perspectives.

At the Women in Design Deep Dive 2019, you will have the opportunity to participate in a series of exceptional lectures and interactive workshops that explore just who the female designer is within today’s shifting creative culture. As designers, it is our mission to provoke change, even – perhaps especially – when doing so disrupts the status quo. Join us as we honor the female leaders who have broken the mold to bring us this far and energize those who will carry us into the next generation.


Registration opens February 28th!
