Cofounder @ Mixcloud
"Imagine walking through the world for decades with your eyes closed. That's what it felt like after completing this course. In just 5 mornings, the incredible FF team fluently introduced the class to complex concepts around structural oppression and inequity, and helped us understand why and how we live in a world where this is allowed to exist. Then the practical part: how we can design to address these issues. If you are committed to doing the work to create positive change in your company or community, I thoroughly recommend this course. Lessons for life."
"Inclusion is of utmost importance to us, and as a first time Founder it's not something that I'm particularly knowledgeable about. Participating in this programme not only gave me the space and time to learn about the inequalities that exist but armed with a practical framework to make change happen. Design for Inclusion has made me more considerate and thoughtful in how inclusive each aspect of our company is. Since completion of the programme, we're working on analysing multiple aspects of our business, and putting together a pragmatic plan for change."
"I really valued learning the construct for understanding and tracing back systemic 'isms' back to their origins. Also hearing the perspectives of the other participants, several of whom were D&I experts, was super beneficial. I and the others from my company who were also on the course have shared a topline summary of our learnings to the company and have kicked off a conversation with the people team about quick wins and longer-term projects to build and amend policies and processes with inclusion front of mind."
