Equity in IxDA

Inequity is a catastrophe that affects everyone. Passionate protests and social unrest have shaken institutions and shed new light on the ongoing crisis. They point to the urgent need for parity for oppressed, overlooked, under-represented populations around the world. Black lives matter. Social justice is overdue. Change is required.

The mission of IxDA has always been to improve the human condition:

We believe that the human condition is increasingly challenged by poor experiences. IxDA is committed to improving the human condition by advancing the discipline of Interaction Design. To do this, we foster a community of people that choose to come together to support this intention. Diversity, inclusion, and parity are core values. IxDA relies on individual initiative, contribution, sharing, and self-organization as the primary means for us to achieve our goals.

IxDA stands against racism, sexism, homophobia, nativism, patriarchy, and misogyny, and all forms of inequity. We are redoubling our efforts to fight patterns of white supremacy and colonialism. Below are the commitments we keep. We continue to strive to do better. Our processes involve self-examination, community dialog, and seeking expertise. We draw on our mission and principles, evaluate where we are now, and continue to work for meaningful change.
