Presented in partnership with the Interaction Design Association (IxDA), the inaugural World Interaction Design Day will focus on the theme of diversity and inclusion in design, and over 70 events in 34 countries have already been announced. The presentations, panels, workshops, and design showcases will explore how design affects and is affected by all aspects of human diversity.

World Interaction Design Day has no central location, there are events planned around the world — more than 70 events are planned in 34 countries.
Join the live stream
Even if you aren’t able to attend an event yourself, you can follow the 10-hour live streaming marathon from Adobe Live, featuring eight guests who will share how they address demographic diversity and foster a culture of inclusion in their work — and how you can approach these topics in your own work.
Join the conversation
Share content, thoughts, and perspectives on what diversity and inclusion in design means to you using #IxDD and call on your networks to do the same! You can also put the IxDD social media assets to use and help spread the word, and boost awareness of the hard work and talent of interactions designers across the globe.
