WHAT YOU'LL LEARN
(00:05:10) Creating a Positive Space/What to Expect
(00:07:44) Why do you think this conversation is important?
(00:10:15) What started you on this journey of realizing there is racism inside of you, around you, and in the systems?
(00:20:50) As a person of privilege, how do you push past the defensiveness you may feel when you make what you think is a positive statement on race, that might be corrected or responded to with anger? How do you help others do the same?
(00:33:23) Does racism in the form of implicit bias and microaggressions unknown to the designer ever find its way into our designs and what should be cognizant of when we’re designing?
(00:43:35) As designers, we are often required to work within spaces that have internalized or institutionalized racism and bias. How can we design as antiracists while existing within a structure that may be resistant to that kind of change?
(00:55:00) What is the design lab doing around diversity and antiracism?
(01:01:44) What is your call to action for others with design power and privilege? What can they do to identify and interrupt the racism that is happening around us?
Don't miss a beat!
