Design + Equity
The importance of designing beyond inclusion
Design Thinking’s default stance is to design for communities and not with them. How do we reckon with this power asymmetry and create space for healing and accountability in Design?

In this talk, Tania Anaissie, founder of Beytna Design studio, and I discuss highlights from her recent Medium article titled "A Design Thinker reckons with Design Thinking". We talk about everything from aligning your values to your practice, how to create space for healing in the design community, and shared stories of design thinking disasters in Cape Town, within the education system, and in the U.S. prison system.
