Design Your Talk Topic

Do you want to start speaking at conferences? Does public speaking terrify you, even though you know it’s good for your career? Do you have a lot of ideas, but aren’t sure what you are qualified to speak about? Let us help you take the first steps to craft your design talk.

AIGA DC is excited to partner with Women Talk Design to bring you a workshop to learn about how to get started! Women Talk Design is an organization that shares the values of accessibility, consent and inclusion. By the end of this workshop you will:

  • Identify your personal why
  • Construct the context of your talk
  • Explore what topics you can speak about
  • Meet supportive colleagues and coaches to help you be successful in your first (or next!) talk


  • 6:00 - 6:30 - Networking
  • 6:30 - 8:20 - Workshop
  • 8:20 - 8:30 - Closing Time

About our Partner:

Women Talk Design is on a mission to see more diverse speakers on stage. They elevate brilliant women and gender non-binary speakers and their talks so organizers can better discover them, provide tools, information and resources to organizers on how to design more inclusive events, and offer training, events, and community for new speakers. They believe everyone – of all genders, races, religions, ethnicities, abilities, and backgrounds – should be able to attend an event, look up on stage, and see someone giving a talk on stage that looks like them, and think ‘that could be me’.
