Building Learnings: Adaptive Factors
The first of four virtual events focuses on power and privilege in cross-sector alignment. This two-part event on Friday, November 13, features George Aye, co-founder and director of innovation at Greater Good Studio.
What role does power and privilege play when designing for the social sector? How does that impact what good design looks like? This talk will serve as a wake-up call for designers working to make social change where the risk of doing harm is as likely as the promise of doing good.
George will go deeper on the topics of power and privilege through a series of prompting questions and facilitated discussions. The time will provide the needed space to reflect in small groups the ways in which power and privilege show up in our work.
