Equity Design 101: Co-Creation for Equity in Education

  • Four Points Sheraton 1125 Boston Providence Turnpike Norwood, MA (map)

Reflex Design Collective uses a process called Equity Design, which helps organizations generate not only creative solutions to social challenges, but also much-needed collaborative partnerships between influential stakeholders and marginalized populations. In other words, we help organizations design with, not for, their communities in empowering ways.

Participants will learn the basic mindsets and skills of the equity design process through a hands-on workshop about a social challenge relevant to the education community. Participants will work collaboratively through a series of equity design exercises to explore the challenge while picking up skills and insights and having fun along the way. At the end of the training, participants will present low-fidelity prototypes of their design solutions. They will walk away with new mindsets and preliminary skills that can be deepened with further learning and practice.

Through this collaborative and hands-on workshop, participants will walk away with:
-Familiarity with the equity design process,
-Understanding of applications of equity design to the education world,
-Onboarding to design tools for future applications,
-Basic skills that can be honed further through training and practice,
-Improved team cohesion, new connections.
