Join us at the Land8 Virtual Conference! (Now with video!)

As part of the Land8 Virtual Conference, Gina joined an amazing lineup of speakers to host a webinar, “Cutting Against the Bias” on April 21. The conversation about gender in design practice often leans in on the challenges as opposed to the agency of women designers. The talk focuses on gender as a creative driver in practice, a multi-faceted benefit in business, and a critical dimension of diversity in design.
