AIGA is committed to creating an inclusive environment where diverse voices are active in all aspects of our organization. This requires a culture of inclusion in which all individuals feel respected and are treated fairly; where different viewpoints, opinions, thoughts, and ideas are encouraged and embraced.

We are excited to announce that AIGA DFW now has a Diversity & Inclusion Committee dedicated to providing ideas and resources that encourage a comprehensive approach to considering all factors that shape creative perspective and professional experience.

Working together to move past both known and unknown biases will create an inclusive environment that openly values diversity and actively eliminates discrimination. Please mark your calendars for the afternoon of March 2, 2018 when AIGA DFW will host its first Diversity & Inclusion Panel.

Current committee members include Pauline Hudel-Smith, Rebekah Shamsa, Linda Joseph, and Daniel Beauchamp. The committee and Board of Directors encourage you to reach out with questions or ideas to support this mission by emailing
