Community Overview

About the Bay Area Black Designers community

Bay Area Black Designers is an online community for Designers.

In their own words

BABD exists to provide meaningful community to Black design professionals who want to support each other’s growth and development. We provide this via exclusive access to intimate groups called Squads which are the core BABD experience. Squads are intimate groups of 4-5 members representing a range of experience and design roles. Squad members share their goals, challenges, and intentions, and they commit to helping each other thrive. It’s not about networking and hustle — it’s about growth that unfolds in balanced and focused ways, and creating true friendships within reciprocal community. Each Squad is together for one quarter (three months) and they meet twice-monthly.
