WomXn in Design is a
student-run organization at the
Harvard GraDuate school of design
committed to advancing gender equity in and through design. Led by womxn, but open to all, WiD works to make the design field more equitable and open in light of the historic under-representation of womxn in recognized leadership roles as well as design's critical need for diversity, collaboration, care, and re-centering marginalized voices. Part of that involves working to increase the visibility of and transform conditions around female-identifying designers and to incorporate their experiences and knowledge into our education at the Graduate School of Design. WiD offers a supportive network, a critical forum for discussion, and an open space for generally hanging out and talking about current events at the GSD and beyond. Those who do not identify as female are highly encouraged to join as well. Womxn in Design organizes around three core objectives: (1) nurturing a supportive community of care on campus, (2) creating opportunities for students' personal and professional development, and (3) public advocacy for systemic change towards gender equity.
