How might we design conversations that inspire internal reflection?
Partnership with NYU
In communities ranging from big corporate organizations to small religious groups, people want to make a change, but aren't sure about how to achieve that at a bigger level.
We help catalyze this transformation process.
Elana Wolpert and I, facilitate conversations on diversity and inclusiveness, that give people a space to reflect on their own actions and ideate on actionable steps.
Our first step in working with a community is to understand it's needs and current state/culture. We then try to identify a preferred state and the motivations of the community partner to hold a conversation. Each conversation's goal therefore varies with the community's needs.
These conversations are often about uncomfortable or sensitive topics, and hence, need design. Our primary purpose is to make these difficult conversations constructive between people with diverse identities and opinions. Therefore, Elana and I spend a lot of time planning the right flow and minute details for each session.
