Design + Equity
Reckoning with Design Thinking
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. We also discuss a practice, Liberatory Design, which offers an approach for doing equity work with communities.‍
