The Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA) was proud to be one of the sponsors for the VISIBILITY x DSGN event from the Designer's Workshop. Held on February 18, 2021, the event provided a VR-like space for Black makers to meet up as avatars, share their experiences, and connect.
Leaders on IDSA's Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Council, Tracy Llewellyn, IDSA and Raja Schaar, IDSA, served as moderators for the "Built Camp" of the entirely online experience. Sponsoring the event is part of IDSA's continued commitment to financially support initiatives with the DEIC that are centered on equity, diversity, and inclusion efforts in industrial design and related design disciplines.
VISIBILITY x DSGN was co-hosted by Designer's Workshop founder Kamille Glenn and strategic planning lead Felema Yemaneberhan. Bradley Bowers, a presenter at IDSA's upcoming Getting It Made Deep Dive, also participated as a Built Camp moderator.
