Event Details

What is the role of equity and power in community-centered collaboration? How might we design more equitable communities and systems through the lens of personal and organizational humility-building? In this interactive introductory workshop, participants will learn about and apply Equity-Centered Community Design strategies to examine how their own identities shape design and decision-making, and will practice collaboratively co-designing more inclusive and equitable communities. 

LIMITED SPACE. REGISTER NOW. 

Antoinette Carroll is the Founder/Executive Director of the Creative Action Lab. Creative Reaction Lab (CRXLAB) is creating a youth-led, community-centered movement and professional pipeline challenging racial inequities in the education, media, health, and government sectors. Through real-world, project-based educational programs, Black and Latinx youth apply a health, racial equity, and design lens to community challenges impacting the quality of life and life expectancy of both races. Changing the way youth (and people in general) address systemic oppression, CRXLAB has pioneered a social justice form of creative problem solving called Equity-Centered Community Design. CRXLAB's vision is a world that embraces the humanity, rights, and power of Black and Latinx people.

Antionette D. Carroll is founder and CEO of Creative Reaction Lab. Antionette has worked for nonprofits working for social justice, human rights, and diversity and inclusion. As a former resident of Ferguson, Missouri, the death of Michael Brown Jr. changed her from a typical 9-to-5 graphic designer to a social entrepreneur and equity designer. Antionette was named the founding chair of the Diversity and Inclusion Task Force of AIGA: The Professional Association of Design in 2014. She is the chair emerita of the task force working on long-term strategic initiatives such as the Design Census Program with Google and the national Design for Inclusivity Summit. At the local level, she is the president emerita of AIGA St. Louis and co-founder of the Design + Diversity Conference. Antionette sits on several awards and programming committees for local and national nonprofits. She is a TED Fellow, AMEX/Ashoka Emerging Innovator, 4.0 Schools Fellow, and Camelback Ventures Fellow.

This event is made possible by the generous support of the Lewis Family.

Co-sponsored by the C.A.R.E. Center at CMC.
