Convo with Kona Gray Hosted by the Emerging Professionals
May 18, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
On Wednesday, May 5th, Kona Gray did a lecture hosted by Stanford University titled Democratic Ground: Discovering Equity In The Landscape. Kona shared a call to action for fellow designers to come together to reinvent the practice of design. With his long-term commitment and support to students and emerging professionals, we are excited to have Kona back with a follow-up discussion on his presentation and engage with our Emerging Professionals and Students through questions and conversation.
Join us as we continue the conversation together and discuss the importance of fostering cultural diversity in design towards curating the public realm to take care of the needs of humanity and nature. A recording of the original presentation will be sent out prior to the conversation. Register today and share with friends and colleagues.
