In July and August, Aligning Systems for Health at the Georgia Health Policy Center, supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, reviewed and synthesized learnings about aligning across sectors from the past year, leading to a new design for the visualization of the Cross-Sector Alignment Framework.
This evaluation highlighted the importance of four adaptive factors, including power dynamics, community voices, trust, and equity.
As part of a virtual event series on these adaptive factors, the first event focused on power and privilege in cross-sector alignment. This two-part event on Friday, November 13, featured George Aye, co-founder and director of innovation at Greater Good Studio.
Keynote: Why Is Good Design So Hard To Do?
What role does power and privilege play when designing for the social sector? How does that impact what good design looks like? This webinar served 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.
Workshop: Power and Privilege
George went deeper on the topics of power and privilege through a series of prompting questions and facilitated discussions. Attendees were given space to reflect in small groups the ways in which power and privilege show up in our work.
