View descriptionShare

When traditional ideas are challenged, it can have significant social, economic, health and environmental benefits. In this episode, our researchers discuss how research can help champion social justice issues and bring about cultural change. You’ll find out how design can be a powerful force for breaking down gender stereotypes, how diversity has evolved in the past decade, and whether technology is displacing or augmenting labour markets.
