We seek to cultivate a diverse design community for creative individuals that models inclusion, fosters accessibility, and promotes excellence for a thriving West Michigan. Diversity may be measured by differences in gender identity, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, ability status, socioeconomic status, age, physical appearance, religion, political affiliation, and any factor that shapes creative perspective and professional experience.


We will seek, build, and sustain intentional and diverse relationships that create a more inclusive design environment.


  • Model Inclusion for our chapter and the communities we represent
  • Foster Access by raising awareness of design and supporting career development for students of all levels
  • Promote Excellence in our business communities through engagement, knowledge sharing, and exchange of resources
