Intro to Equity-Centered Design at WMCAT

About this Event

Grounded in design thinking methods and mindsets and embedded with equity principles, we believe Equity-Centered Design can transform the way your team communicates, innovates, serves, and leads.

This hands-on training is intended for individuals or teams who want to expand their capacity for innovation and solution-building to create more equitable processes, programs, and systems. In these unprecedented times, these skills are critical across industries in both the private and non-profit sectors.

What you’ll do:

  • Learn new ways of listening to clients/customers to identify underlying needs and frame design opportunities
  • Experience how to generate and test ideas quickly to meet those needs
  • Build a practice of self-awareness that allows for more human-centered, equitable design outcomes for your clients/customers
  • Increase your ability to innovate and learn through failure

What you’ll need:

  • A computer with a camera and internet connection
  • A Basic Zoom account
  • A comfortable space in which to learn, participate in conversations, and share ideas freely with limited disruption
  • An open mind and interest in joining a community of learners

Dates + Times:

  • *THREE SESSIONS*: Tuesdays, March 2, 9, + 16, 8:30AM-12:30PM
  • Each session builds off one another, so plan to attend all three dates. Although adapted for a virtual environment, participants should be ready for a high level of interaction with others throughout the training.

Enrollment deadline February 19, 2021.
