Our Philosophy

We believe that long-term change happens by developing equity consciousness while simultaneously working on real equity challenges you face. Through this direct application, our partners make the leap from theoretical to practical and directly embed equity consciousness into their work processes. We see that people’s capacity to practice Liberatory Design long-term in their organizations is built through working through multiple full design cycles.
