    This week we’re bringing you twenty-two hours of content over three days celebrating diversity and inclusion in design around the world.

    Streaming live on Behance from our Union Square offices in NYC in support of World Interaction Design Day (IxDD) https://interactiondesignday.org, we have a special roster of 8 talented designers joining us to illustrate the power of UX / UI design to improve the human condition, and share how they address demographic diversity and foster a culture of inclusion in their work.

    As designers, how can we be more inclusive of those whose backgrounds and experiences differ from our own? Join us for some important discussion and inspiration - and join in the conversation during the live streams via the Behance chat pod.


    WHEN: Tuesday from 6:30am PST to 3:00pm PST Wednesday and Thursday from 9:00am PST to 3:00pm PST.
