How Design Thinking Protects White Supremacy

Mar 10, 2024

11:30am – 12:30pm CT

This session scrutinizes the subtle and pervasive presence of white supremacy, its reinforcement in human-centered design and design thinking methodologies, and the potential transitions towards more inclusive and diverse practices. Utilizing the insights from the National Equity Project, Creative Reaction Lab, and Dismantling Racism, we delve into biases that influence practicing designers, facilitators, and educators alike. We will critically examine white supremacy's influence on behavior and design practices, aiming to foster the development of more equitable and inclusive mindsets.
