AIGA Minnesota Diversity & Inclusion: Call for Committee Members

July 27, 2017

AIGA Minnesota’s Director of Diversity & Inclusion is seeking to create a committee to help the organization become more inclusive. Participating in the committee will help amplify the positive impact of the national AIGA Task Force within our local chapter.

The committee’s focus would be pointed at access to our organization, improving inclusion efforts of existing programs and events, trainings for our board and members on systemic oppression, the gaining and retention of marginalized creatives, mentorships for leadership positions, and educating our industry on what it means to be inclusive.

Interested in Joining?
