This symposium brings together researchers, scholars, and practitioners to engage in a dialogue addressing the bias embedded in such fields and contexts as data and research, planning and design, and identity and space. At the heart of this is a much-needed discussion about how we can collectively design a more equitable and just future. Enjoy three live sessions, interactive networking with symposium attendees, a workbook, and a discussion featuring all panelists.
Organized by students from the DDes and Ph.D. programs at the GSD.
