Introduction: Advancements and innovations in design have the power to permeate every product, moment, and solution in our lives. However, there is one area in which design as a profession is lagging: diversity.
Why It Matters: The truth is, approximately 86% of professional designers are white. Yet race is only part of the picture. Diversity in design means diversity of experience, perspective, and creativity—otherwise known as diversity of thought—and these can be shaped by multiple factors including race, ethnicity, gender, age, sexual identity, ability/disability and location, among others.
What You’ll Take Away: On Dec 14th, General Assembly and CreativeMornings will join forces to tackle this future of diversity in design head-on. So join us for a powerful evening of thought leadership, community building, and an inclusive discussion featuring some of Boston's best designers.

In 2008, Tina Roth Eisenberg (Swissmiss) started CreativeMornings out of a desire for an ongoing, accessible event for New York’s creative community. The concept was simple: breakfast and a short talk one Friday morning a month. Every event would be free of charge and open to anyone.
Today, attendees gather in cities around the world to enjoy fresh coffee, friendly people, and an international array of breakfast foods. Volunteer hosts and their team members organize local chapters that not only celebrate a city’s creative talent, but also promote an open space to connect with like-minded individuals.
