Kat Holmes with Hanson Hosein

Onetime Microsoft design executive who now has founded her own design firm, Kata, and was named “One of the Most Creative People in Business” by Fast Company in 2017, Kat Holmes is here with her new book, Mismatch: How Inclusion Shapes Design (MIT Press).  

“Kat Holmes's approachable book, Mismatch, calls to tech industry leaders and designers to create inclusion by making a world that invites all of us to participate and benefits everyone. Designing for the future, Holmes convinces, requires designing for human diversity. Mismatch is a manifesto, a primer, and a rousing invitation for everyone in the design and production process to become inclusion experts who will collectively make a better, more effective, and more just world for us to share. - Rosemarie Garland-Thomson.

“Kat Holmes shows us how to make inclusion a source of innovation. An important read for anyone who aspires to build great products for the greatest number of people.” - Satya Nadella.

Kat Holmes will be in conversation this evening with Hanson Hosein, director of the Community Leadership master’s program at the University of Washington, and president of HRH Media Group LLC.

Co-presented with TOWN HALL INSIDE/OUT Arts & Culture series.
