How diverse is the world of graphic design?

How diverse do you think the graphic design world is? A recent New York Times article, “Design Gets More Diverse,” interviewed black designers about their experiences.

Eddie Opara, a partner at Pentagram, says that although design has often been called a “man’s world,” he feels it is more accurate to call it a “white man’s world.”

AIGA medalist Gail Anderson says that she feels it’s actually harder to break through barriers of gender than those of race.

What has your experience with diversity been in the world of graphic design? Have you personally run into barriers because of your race or gender, or have you run into any other barriers like lack of prestigious education credentials, etc.?
