Diversity In Tech

What happens when people of many backgrounds work together to create and share great work? How can radical collaboration and entrepreneurialism come together to build new business models out of locally focused creativity?

These questions are driving forces that compel the vibrant innovation community in Grand Rapids. But, how do they relate to the Grand Rapids Art Museum’s upcoming exhibition of design objects that were made in New Orleans between 1894 to 1940?

Join AIGA West Michigan, Grand Rapids Art Museum, Local First and Ladies That UX as we explore how these topics relate to supporting and cultivating diversity in technology.

Showing up gets you: Cajun snacks, beer, an awesome conversation between panelists and presenters and the chance to learn about and engage in design thinking activities with peers in GR’s design community with facilitation by our friends at Visualhero.
