Design for Equity: Defining outcomes LIMITED

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

This workshop will use dialog from the Equity Collective and Design for Equity article series (http://www.designforequity.org/articles.html) as a starting point, but looks to expand the conversation with all participants, and speak critically about how to elevate the community-engaged design field.

In small topical groups, an open and candid discussion relating to the Design for Equity framework posed by the facilitators will create an opportunity for all participants to enhance and share in this important conversation. This will also be a time to reflect on personal practices and an opportunity to leverage all the expertise in the room to move everyone’s work forward.

The workshop will close with a visioning activity to define concrete next steps towards a Theory of Change, as a way to build a more unified movement and think about tactics and strategies that can move equity outcomes to the forefront of all Community Design practices, projects, and processes.

Desired Outcomes:
Open up conversation and create collective definitions
Push the field towards action to move the field forward
Workshop and provide support around specific work/terms, expanding the base of the work
Advance the pathway or Theory of Change
