Design for Equal

The design workforce is only 22% female, and even fewer women are in leadership roles. Kelly Mackenzie, the founder and Creative Director of the majority female branding agency White Bear Studio, wants to share her urgency for women and other minorities to shout their ideas loud in their workplace.  After all, “Our greatest asset when we design is human diversity.” — Tim Allen
