Designing Women Panel Discussion and Pecha Kucha

  • 724 NW Davis St

  • USA

Co-sponsored by Bitch Magazine and Museum of Contemporary Craft, this event is a two-fold investigation into conversations relating to women in the field of design, both as creators and as consumers.

First, a panel will discuss the role of women in the design industry and how a female perspective helps to define design today. Portland-based designers Julie Beeler, Kate Bingaman-Burt, Sara Huston, and architect Carrie Strickland will give voice to their experience in a male-dominated field and articulate how the gender landscape has changed since the start of their own careers. Plus, a reading on Architect Barbie: How do pink and blue toys influence gender stereotypes for future designers?

Second, a women in design Pecha Kucha organized in collaboration with LAWD, (the League of Awesome Women Designers), will feature work being done across the field in rapid-fire sequence.

The entire program will be moderated by Namita Gupta Wiggers.
