Tania Anaissie

Founder
Equity Design Lab

Tania is the founder of an equity-design agency based in the Bay Area that uses human-centered design to tackle issues of inequity in the government, education, and criminal justice systems. She co-developed Liberatory Design, a new practice of human-centered design that accounts for power, historical context, and oppression. It invites communities and those in positions of power to co-design solutions to equity challenges together. Formerly, she was a Lecturer and Experience Designer at the Stanford d.school where she designed and taught original classes, worked on future-facing strategy projects such as Stanford2025, and designed cutting-edge digital education experiments. Tania loves talking about human-centered design, justice, city and government reform, community power, and authenticity.
She led a Liberatory Design workshop at SXSWedu in 2017 and is leading a session titled "Design & Equity: Methods for Community Co-Design" at SXSW this year.
