DesignDay Message Board › Meetup Agenda - Sat Jan 19, 2013: Design Day by Bangalore Designers
I've updated this Meetup. For more details, see the full listing:
When: Saturday, January 19, 2013 9:30 AM
Where: Microsoft R&D Pvt. Ltd.
Vigyan,#9, near Lavelle Road
Our next meetup is on "Design for Women safety". I am sure all of you were moved by the brutal assault on Delhi's braveheart 31 days ago. We mourned, we protested, we sighed and we moved on. Delhi has taken some positive steps and rather quickly, but for the rest of the country sexual harassment is commonplace. If you are someone who wants to do something about it, please attend this event to understand the problem and discover what you can do about it.
We will most likely have a talk by @Niharika Puri to give a background into the issue - 9 years of experience in gender sensitization, she has worked closely with rape victims as well as preparators and police.
We will also have a product demo on a design solution towards addressing this problem. The audience is welcome to punch holes and give feedback.
Lastly there will be a JAM in which we'll come if with actionable plans to address this problem.
This is a designers only event but we are opening it up for general public this time.
