Many products from toothbrushes, vitamins, running apps, dating apps, questionnaires, and more, organizes users into two boxes: male and female. We’re constantly asked to reaffirm our gender through the products we use, often by superficial characteristics that play into traditional gender norms. As our understanding of identity becomes more fluid, binary products increasingly have the potential to alienate users whose gender doesn’t fit neatly into a world of pink and blue. How do we create products that move beyond the binary?

Join us for a workshop where we’ll consider how often we have to reaffirm our gender, who is left out in this process and how as designers, we can start to shift things.
