The Presenters

The Third Wave speakers will address future-facing topics such as the designer's role in a data-driven world, how empathy should be re-evaluated to include diverse voices in the design process, the future of food, transportation, and more. Each presentation will lead attendees on a journey toward a better future, where designers have a responsibility to emphasize the notions of inclusion, sustainability, and cooperation within their work as we transition into a world more mindful of our own impact on the planet and the people who live here.
