Take first steps to recognize oppression, take accountability for it and disrupt it with reflection questions in this digital card deck.
The curriculum has been designed to move you forward
from theory to action at a reasonable pace.
Get familiar with the program curriculum and assess your starting point. Review the human and business case behind designing for positive change and identify the “why” that most resonates with you.
Explore how systems of oppression show up in design and the world around us. Look into the mirror of your own bias, privilege and power. Discover a new frame of thinking and working that can disrupt the status quo.
Build critical thinking, introspective habits and practices to disrupt oppressive patterns and systems and nurture liberatory behaviors in the design process.
Work through objections, challenges and barriers to activating equity, inclusion and justice practices in your team, organization and/or projects.
Apply new practices on a personal or professional project with support from your peers and instructor. Assess your progress and prepare an action plan for the future.
Scheduling Note: Workshops will be held on Zoom and take place on Wednesdays at 9 AM PT/12 PM ET/6 PM CEST to accomodate a global audience. Office hours will be held on Fridays at the same time.
The guide is updated multiple times a year with new learnings and improved accessibility accomodations.
