Antionette Carroll Professional Development Workshop and Free Lecture

Please join us this week for two amazing opportunities! AIGA Toledo is helping sponsor a visit by Antionette Carroll, CEO and founder of Creative Reaction Lab, and former Chair of AIGA’s Diversity & Inclusion Task Force. Antionette is a social entrepreneur, equity designer, international speaker/educator, and diversity, equity, and inclusion specialist. As a pioneer of a new form of creative problem solving called Equity-Centered Community Design, it is an honour to have Antionette speak and lead a workshop in our community. Additionally, Antionette was recently named one of Graphic Design USA’s 2019 People to Watch.

This week’s Free Lecture and Professional Development Workshop are sponsored by Bowling Green State University’s Institute for the Study of Culture & Society, the BGSU Division of Graphic Design, and AIGA Toledo.
