My bio:

We live in a world full of gender designs. Products that literally target men or women, products that target a certain gender by association. There are different mechanisms in the way we design and read objects that fill them with a gender they don't necessarily need. Often these gendered products represent outdated and harmful ideas of gender and gender roles.

De-masking those mechanisms is an important field design has yet to face. In my presentation I'll show you how those mechanisms work and will give you some ideas what we - as designers and consumers - can do change the status quo and improve our impact by design.

Examples of previous talks / appearances:

Gender & Design - 20. April 2018

In unserer Gesellschaft existieren unausgesprochen genaue Vorstellungen davon, wie Männer und Frauen zu sein haben. Diese Erwartungen werden den wenigsten Individuen gerecht und haben sich dennoch in unserem Alltag verfestigt, oft ohne, dass es uns bewusst ist. Die angehende Diplom Produktdesignerin Susanne Umscheid zeigt wie sich Vorurteile und Geschlechterstereotype in unsere Alltagsprodukte eingeschlichen haben und beleuchtet mit den Zuhörenden, wie man ihnen den Kampf ansagen kann.
