Organizations around the world are reflecting on the urgency of this moment to build a more equitable and just society — especially for historically underserved communities of color.

If you have products, programs, and services that could better meet the needs of Black, Indigenous, and people of color, but aren't sure how to take the first step, this webinar is for you. We will introduce "equity design — designing with the intention of eliminating oppression, exclusion, and top-down approaches — and guide you through how to begin applying it within your team.

We'll cover
> The fundamentals of equity design: what it is, why it is important, and where it can be used in your organization's products and services.
> Building an equity design framework: how can you support your users and beneficiaries at an individual, institutional, and structural level?
> Common challenges organizations face when adopting equity-based practices.
> Getting ready to prototype and test new community-driven approaches.
> Developing tried and true success metrics for you to take back to your team.
