Introduction to Equity-Centered Community Design


Oppressive, inequitable, and unequal systems are by design; therefore, we can redesign them. Equity-Centered Community Design is a creative problem-solving framework developed by Creative Reaction Lab that supports the development of equity-centered approaches that will dismantle oppressive systems. Every person is a designer because we each have the power to affect outcomes with the decisions that we make daily in all arenas of our lives. If we are striving to redesign for justice, it is essential that history, healing, power, identities, and narratives are consistently centered.

Intended for those in the beginning stages of learning Equity-Centered Community Design, this 2-hour live interactive webinar will introduce each piece of the ECCD framework + our Redesigners for Justice movement, promoting a sustainable shift in mindset shift. Q&A will be used to support learning.

By the end of this session, learners will:

  • Have reflected on their own basic understanding and practice of each concept through polling and large group discussions in the chatbox.
  • Have a basic understanding of the ways in which they might practice Equity-Centered Community Design concepts.
  • Have an initial set of questions they can use for self and team assessment to support the development of equity-centered approaches.
  • Be able to identify several ways in which they are or can be Redesigners for Justice.
