Welcome back to Medium Well! Today I am launching a solo series where I break down topics I am thinking about, learning about, or have expertise in-- all in 5-15(ish) minute episodes. More about this format at the beginning of this episode! In today's episode, I speak about something I am thinking about as I learn more about equity-centered design (a reframe of design thinking)-- who's in the room, and who has access to making decisions within our businesses? I break down what I am learning and thinking about in my business and beyond!

In this episode, I discuss:

  • What my new solo series is all about

  • How I am changing my thinking about design thinking, and learning more about equity-centered design

  • Evaluating who has decision-making power in your organization and if it’s the same folks who are impacted by the decisions being made (and why it’s problematic if the latter folks aren’t included)

  • Valuing lived experience in addition to professional experience
