Statement of AIGA’s commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion

AIGA, the professional association for design, is committed to creating an inclusive environment where diverse voices are active in all aspects of our organization. This requires a culture of inclusion in which all individuals feel respected and are treated fairly, and different viewpoints, opinions, thoughts, and ideas are encouraged and embraced.

We are actively engaged in furthering Diversity & Inclusion within the design community, and we support organizations with missions and goals that value equity and inclusion for people of all backgrounds.

We consider diversity comprehensively, including race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, ability and disability, age, and other factors that shape creative perspective and professional experience.

We understand that achieving equity is a continuous process, and we seek to maintain the highest standards of ethics, transparency, and accountability. We strive to:

  • Support and encourage policy that advances social inclusion
  • Communicate and share content respectfully and with inclusive representation
  • Reflect diversity in our national staff, committees, and boards
  • Foster open and constructive discussions amongst all members and chapters
  • Engage with diverse constituencies
  • Work with diverse vendors, consultants, and members of the creative community
  • Celebrate diversity and inclusion in our programming
