Event details

Following a successful bid for the M4C Dialogue Day fund, Emma Waight (Coventry University) will be running the event ‘Gender in/and design: Scoping challenges and opportunities in the Midlands’ at the Institute for Creative Cultures on Thursday 17th March from 10am – 3pm, in collaboration with Alessandro Columbano (Birmingham City University). With a keynote from Nat Maher, founder of Kerning the Gap, the event aims to bring together like-minded researchers, lecturers and industry in order to discuss and identify issues related to gender in/and design.

This event is open to academics, practitioners, FE tutors, and postgraduate research students working within the disciplines of design (all disciplines) and/or the organizational politics of gender, and/or with a keen interest in intersections between the two themes. The aim of the event is to foster collaboration, with a focus on developing networks in the Midlands that may lead to future projects and initiatives for improving gender equality within the design industry at all levels.
