Men tend to sit out conversations about gender equality and equity. They often consider it to be a “women’s issue” or are afraid of making a mistake and saying the wrong thing.
But men are also in the majority of leadership roles—and not just in the design industry. They have the most power to create change and create equity across all genders. So this isn’t a conversation they can sit out.
When it comes to gender equity, what should we expect of men in the design industry? And what do they expect of themselves?
To find out, we’ll take a time-bending journey from West Africa to Dublin, Ireland, to Silicon Valley and back again. We’ll look at survey data that cuts through the bullshit and crosses all levels of the design industry. And I’ll show you real-world examples of big and small actions that have actually created more gender equity in design. And we’ll see why progress is better than perfection.
