Toronto is the most diverse city in the world. You cannot have a successful business designing for your audiences if you don’t have the cultural competency to understand the different ways in which they will resonate with your message. The only way in which you can confidently do that is if the diversity of your staffing reflects the diversity of the city itself.

"Everything that we design is tied to cultural values and cultural meaning that we build into the things that we make," said Dr. Elizabeth (Dori) Tunstall as Dean of the Faculty of Design at OCAD University. She is the first black Dean of a Faculty of Design anywhere.

In this interview, she talks to AfroToronto.com about her work as a design anthropologist and on using her position to open doors for others.
