The online resource and campaign offers practical ways to address the lack of diversity in the design industry, as well as a manifesto for change.
"At present, the design industry in the UK isn't representative of the society it serves," said Design Can's founders.
"It's 78 per cent male, only 13 per cent of employees are from BAME backgrounds, and worryingly there are few comparable statistics for people with disabilities, and none that are recent or particular to the design industry," they added.

Design Can has been set up by a group of industry leaders and activists including editor of architecture magazine Icon, Priya Khanchandani, and designer Yinka Ilori, in collaboration with communications agency Zetteler. Its founders aim to push the industry to better represents women, people from BAME backgrounds and people with disabilities.

It is split into five sections ? read, watch, listen, follow and attend. Readers can discover the work of emerging and established designers, read selected articles relating to the industry, watch videos, listen to podcasts, and keep track of design events.
