5 actions to Equitable Design Lab
Reimagining Modern Design – Products and services today are not as inclusive as they should be. Bias and prejudice translate into design that fails people of color.
Underlying Disparities – While the vast majority are not intentionally racist or exclusive, the lack of access or sense of belonging in products and services lead to massive consequences.
Systemic Consequences – Consequences of inequitable design are deepening the gap between communities and individuals.
A Comprehensive Solution – We believe a key way to reach racial equity is by redesign the products, services and experiences surrounding us
Empowering Opportunity and Access – By redefining the frameworks in which products are designed, we hope to bridge opportunities and access to underserved populations.
