We use imagination and design to move companies beyond awareness of structural racism toward specific actions that contribute to social justice.
We combine a decade of anti-racism experience with design thinking. Culture-Driven Design adds identity and equity to the equation to result in innovative and equitable solutions that dismantle oppression and prevent appropriation.
Designing solutions that dismantle bias and racism in any work environment is difficult. Of course design is more about unpacking problems than it is finding solutions. One of the biggest obstacles when it comes to making a cultural change in the workplace is when there is an awareness of problems but policies set in place cause a bystander effect.
When people reach out for help with diversity and inclusion problems they often think we will put together a slideshow. Often the leads we get stand against oppression themselves and have a lot of amazing knowledge. Especially since the murder of brother George Floyd people are more aware of the plight of the oppressed and black folks in particular.
Shallow, surface, and materialistic are words we can use to describe the vanity in our world. Vanity may not go a long way but it does coax us to a particular road. Vanity in any experience can raise the tolerance of our attention.
