Designing for Worldview

Amy Lazarus, InclusionVentures

How does your life experience shape your view of the world? How does it seep into your interactions, or into the products and services you're designing and funding? "Designing for Worldview" is an interactive workshop that applies the problem-solving power of human-centered design to the challenge of building awareness of unconscious bias. Through this design challenge, participants leave with a prototype that will help their creativity and leadership in the coming weeks. The workshop has been getting rave reviews from tech companies, Venture Capital firms, nonprofits, and philanthropic organizations. Participants say: -"[The design challenge outcome is increasing my] productivity. It's also making me extra grateful for and excited about my job." –Media professional -"So often you worry that exercises like these leave you thinking but stuck in regards to how to act. I feel like having this exercise/framework is a nice/low lift way to stay self aware." - Venture Capitalist -"This was refreshing. The conversation was dynamic." - Diversity Committee member
