Making a Seat at the Table
Where are we now?
Join Katie Lee and Lynn Kiang, co-founders of Dome as they share the process of making Seat at the Table, a public exhibition that highlights the current state of gender inequity in America and a reminder of the ongoing struggle by women since gaining the right to vote over 100 years ago. This event will be moderated by Andrea Ngan.
They will share their personal and professional experience on:
- Running a creative business
- Diversity, equity, inclusion
- Creative problem solving (medium agnostic)
This event will be live-captioned and include ASL interpretation.
