From Program to Process: Designing Equitable Organizations & Products

Designer of Equitable Orgs & Products, Culture Amp
- Session Description:
How many organizations, processes, and products are poorly designed or produce real-world harm because the right voices weren't let into the room where the building...happens? How much money has been spent on “diversity & inclusion” while companies remain homogenous and underrepresented employees struggle to thrive?
Funding external partnerships and PR don’t address daily microaggressions underrepresented employees face, while unconscious bias training has been shown to potentially increase bias in the workplace. An almost singular focus on women in the workplace has left women of color behind, erased the experience of people with disabilities, and left almost everyone with “diversity fatigue”. Progressive business leaders are questioning many traditional “best practices” that haven’t shown to have a positive impact on employees, and are building new, data-informed and intersectional strategies to truly move the needle. Join The Mathpath Aubrey Blanche, Director of Equitable Design & Impact at Culture Amp, to learn how you can evolve your programs to create fair experiences for every employee and build better, safer products
