We live in a society where the loudest voice in the room tends to get heard the most and many times that voice belongs to those who hold privileged identities. Women and non-binary folks tend to speak up or are asked to speak much less than cis-gender men and this starts to decrease even more when we combine it with other intersectional identities such as race, disability, body size, age, etc.
It’s crucial we hear everyone’s voices – so how do we as leaders create spaces where these voices are listened to, heard, and most importantly, can thrive? How do we leverage the diversity of our spaces and communities to amplify the perspectives of those that are less heard?
Learn from Women Talk Design's years of research and working with hundreds of women and nonbinary creatives from around the world and the expertise of Abbiola Ballah, Equity & Inclusion Consultant and Founder of Phern Education Studios.
This this workshop, we'll discuss the systemic biases that hold these creatives back from being heard. Alongside other leaders, map out the specific actions that *you* can take to get curious, make space, amplify, listen–and ultimately make an impact.
