Are designers becoming the new activists?

Human-centered design, arguably already a form of activism, is receiving greater acceptance and appears to be becoming more activist via reframings such as purpose-driven design, social impact design, value-based design, inclusive design, co-design, design through collective action, and even design thinking. Why is this happening? What are the implications? Are designers becoming the new activists?

Come hear design leaders working in multiple contexts address these important questions.
