AIGA Design Educators Community SHIFT Virtual Summit Aug. 3-7, 2020


From Anne Berry:

  1. Ongoing Matter: Democracy, Design, and the Mueller Report (Folks should definitely contact me if they are interested in more info./participating.)
  2. Self-reporting study: Determining the existence of unconscious bias against scholars underrepresented ethnically in academia and interpreting the impact on their careers (Audrey Bennett and I are soliciting responses, so would definitely encourage SHIFT conference attendees who identify as ethnically underrepresented to participate!)
  3. In case it’s helpful: The Black Academic’s Guide to Winning Tenure Without Losing Your Soul (Of course, people should be encouraged to buy from local bookstores if possible.)
