"Deepti led an inspiring and unconventional conversation at our IIDA Pioneering Design, Agents of Change event. Her perspective on how the labels we impose on ourselves, or that others impose on us,  can be a vehicle for action -not just re-action, really hit home and forced us to think differently. We appreciated being pushed outside of our comfort zone and admire Deepti for her courageous work and activism."
