Thanks to all who nominated questions for Philippa White, her answers are now available for you to enjoy in our featured interview.
For the second installment of our interview series, we'd like to know: What would you ask Valerie Casey — founder of the Designers Accord?
Starting with an article Valerie Casey wrote in 2007, the Designers Accord is a global coalition of designers, corporate leaders, and educational institutions focused on creating positive impact. All 170,000 members (from 100 countries) commit to five guidelines that help maintain socially and environmentally conscious design practices. The Designers Accord not only spreads the word about ethical design practices, it provides a community for like-minded people to generate energy and innovation.
In addition to her involvement with the Designers Accord, Valerie specializes in helping organizations — from Fortune 100 companies to start-ups — develop their internal and external networks to address cultural, economic, and environmental challenges with greater agility. Named a “Guru” of the year by Fortune magazine, and a “Master of Design” by Fast Company, Valerie Casey is playing a major role in design practices worldwide — what do you want to learn from her?
