Table and the CEAD are excited to be hosting Millie Chen (Class of 2019) for Session 2 of ‘Pull Up A Chair’. “Pull Up A Chair” is a virtual conversation series hosted by Table @table_inds featuring OCAD U industrial design alumni. The conversation will explore their journeys through the university program and beyond - diving deep into matters of representation, equity, and inclusion.
This series aims to amplify the voices of alumni who identify as women, non-binary, LGBTQ2S+, BIPOC and/or people with disabilities.
Join our conversation on Twitch on Wednesday, May 25th @ 8PM EST.
Millie is a videographer, filmmaker, and photographer, having recently won ‘Best Film’ at TIFF Next Wave 48h Film Challenge (2021) 🎞️. Graduating with a minor in Material Art & Design, Millie has experience in jewelry design and production, as well as soft goods design. With an entrepreneurial spirit, Millie has built upon her industrial design background to provide fresh perspectives to her endeavors.

Table was created with the goal to better support OCAD University industrial design alumni. A seat at the table has long been a symbol for the power of inclusion, but also, exclusion. As industrial designers, we are deconstructing the table and rebuilding it to be the symbol we hope for the future. We are committed to being an inclusive community that nurtures relationships based on trust, consistency and accountability.
