Today on Exploded view, we are going to explore the topic of diversity within our own industry with the cofounders of the Women in Industrial Design Chicago Chapter (aka WIID), Mallory Evans and McKayla Barber. Mallory and McKayla bring a unique perspective on the topic as Cofounders of WIID, but also as the next generation of successful designers working in our industry. The question we will explore today is how might we empower the next generation of women designers in our field? We will chat with Mallory and McKayla about the great work that WIID is doing, and how they are helping the ID field. They will provide some actionable advice for women on everything from searching for your first job, to what you can do if you find yourself in an uncomfortable work situation. I think this episode is important to listen to regardless of your gender or level of seniority. To that end, we also chat about how men can help empower women in the workplace. I hope you enjoy!
