Sun, Jan 24, 2016 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM
Pivot Point Communications
950 N. Washington Street
Alexandria, VA 22314

Due to inclement weather this event has been cancelled.

Back in October 2015 we discussed the ways diversity (or lack there of) influences design students, practitioners, managers, thinkers, enthusiasts, clients, consumers, and policy makers. Join us for a follow-up conversation and workshop with AIGA 50 judge, Antoinette Carroll, as she continues the dialogue. Hear about her personal and professional experiences, and gain insight along with resources to further enhance the role you play to make DC more inclusive and diverse. Follow the conversation using hashtag #AIGATogether More details to follow!

This event has been cancelled due to inclement weather. It will be rescheduled for mid-February. Check back for details.
