Design for Women

Design for Women, for the Benefit of All

Women’s issues are not women’s alone—they are systemic, and intersect with and impact the shared experiences of all genders. IA Collaborative’s Design for Women illuminates topics and situations that are acutely experienced by women but under-addressed by design—as we take action to create the future we want.

The Future We Want to Design

Creating Better Ecosystems of Care
Women are less likely to have their symptoms taken seriously or their pain treated
Reimagining Wealth Management
Women are much more likely to have a saving shortfall in retirement than men

Our Vision

As innovators, we have a powerful opportunity to design better services, experiences, and offerings for women. Together, we can create a world where designing for women is synonymous with “designing.” In this work, we seek to embrace every design challenge as an opportunity to create equitable solutions for women, continually identifying blind spots and amplifying bright spots as we design gender holistic solutions for the benefit of all.
