IIDA members and its expansive design community are changemakers and leaders not simply within the design world, but in all sectors of society. Together We Make Space—physical space, social space, equitable space, as well as space to support and enhance our communities.
We know that being a part of an engaged and supportive community, that is focused on learning, sharing, and growing, is more important than ever. This is where the IIDA membership comes in. At IIDA, we understand the transformative, connective power of community and the ways in which strong communities uphold equity, accessibility, and safety. For 2023 and beyond, IIDA considers the power of design in making space, creating change, and building a better, more inclusive, brighter (more equitable) future for all.
