NeoCon Virtual Programs
Empathy in Practice
April 22, 2021
Moderated by: Jennifer Busch, Director, Client Partnerships, Eventscape, New York, NY • Presented by: Verda Alexander, Founder and Artist in Residence, Studio O+A, San Francisco, CA • Kia Weatherspoon, NCIDQ, ASID, President + Design Advocate, Determined by Design, Washington, D.C. • Maya Bird-Murphy, Founder and Executive Director, Chicago Mobile Makers, Chicago, IL
Design is about everything we interact with, and for interior design, it’s about combining beauty and function to enhance how users experience a space. But conscientious designers are recognizing they have a larger role to play. Design has become vital to thinking, to process, to solutions, and to action on so many social and environmental issues we find ourselves collectively facing in the 21st Century. Meet a group of optimistic designers taking their skills and talents to the next level by channeling design for real purpose. These practitioners aren’t waiting around for change to happen, they are using design as a tool to enable much needed change. This program has been submitted for accreditation and is pending approval.
*Stay tuned for Work Design Editor’s follow up discussion with the presenters!*
