11:30 AM Talk: Confronting Racism. Embracing Diversity Join us as we raise up and support our Asian American and Pacific Islander community. Our expert panelists will discuss the tragic history of AAPI discrimination in America, focusing on the intersectionality of misogyny and racism among AAPI women. Learn about how our local Asian business community fared over the past year while national figures spewed dangerous and racially motivated rhetoric to scapegoat Asian Americans. Most importantly, learn what you can do to support AAPI businesses and embrace the entire community during AAPI Heritage Month in May.

4:00 PM Talk: the Ripple Effect of Racial Bias in the Toy Industry [email protected] is a speaker series that is hosted by the Design Lab at UCSD, where each quarter we examine a topic in society and the relevance and implications through the lens of human centered design.

Co-hosted by Elizabeth Eikey and Edward Wang and developed in partnership with Carrie Sawyer of Diversity by Design, [email protected] this quarter is a continuation of Winter 2021. the focus is racism in the design of everyday things across a range of topics, such as artificial intelligence, healthcare, advertising, and more. Talks will help shed light on the historical context of racism, the consequences of “designing” without understanding racism’s deep roots, and provide examples of anti-racist and equitable approaches in practice. Too often we want to jump straight to action, but without building our capacity to understand racism (and other “isms”) and critically evaluating its impact, we perpetuate racism and inequity - even with the best intentions. Through an exciting lineup of speakers, this series begins to make connections between history and designing and aims to promote awareness around the lifelong practice of anti-racist work across a variety of interconnected domains.
