Electronics are at the heart of an economic system that has brought many out of poverty and enhanced quality of life. In Western society in particular, our livelihoods, health, safety, and well being are positively impacted by electronics. However, there is growing evidence that our disposal of electronics is causing irreparable damage to the planet and to human health, as well as fueling social conflict and violence.

A highlight of March 2012 International Home + Housewares Show Innovation Theater presentations was IDSA Housewares Section’s panel discussion: The Real Story Behind the Buying Power of Women: What Women as Designers Discovered.

What: In the second of the 2011 Design for the Majority Section Webinar Series, Kara Pecknold will share her experiences, lessons, and methodologies for designing with women in Rwanda in a talk entitled Dialogue Through Design. Open to both IDSA members and non-members.
We’ll sit down with leading women in the field of new product development and innovation and get to the nuts and bolts of career development. What choices were made, why and what lessons have been learned? What advice do they have to pass on to young women just starting out in their careers? These questions and more will be asked in these engaging panel discussions! Please come prepared with your own questions as audience participation will be a part of the event.
