The DEI & Design Program is an online educational program designed and hosted by Design Matters, which aims to:
• Motivate designers to look at diversity in a broader perspective and give designers the tools, thought leadership and inspiration needed to know more about how to design for a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive world through their designs.
• Support and guide designers on the journey to gain a better understanding of many of the topics with the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion space, to make more informed design decisions and inspire their thinking and decision making.
• Setting the conditions for digital designers to interact, connect and collaborate within an international digital design community.
By launching our DEI & Design Program we aim to go that step further in our work with DEI to ensure that we can offer a live-facilitated online program, learning from a wide range of inspiring digital designers, who can teach and share their knowledge through a format that will enable our community to share knowledge with each other as well.
The DEI Program consists of 4 modules where each module has a theme;
Module 1: DESIGNING FOR DEI
Module 2: DESIGNING FOR NEURODIVERSITY
Module 3: DESIGNING FOR GENDER DIVERSITY
Module 4: DESIGNING FOR CULTURAL DIVERSITY
