Diversity projects for safe company cultures with fast-growing leaders and learn more about DEI education
UX/UI Designer and Researcher.
My mission is building accessible diversity education platform and DEI consulting for busy C-suites and BOD
1. Information needs to be consumable on-the-go since C-Suites are busy people. People don't know where to find educational resources for learning about cultural diversity and inclusive training.
2. Employees have trouble scheduling DEI coaching sessions
Q:How are currently diversity issues in corporation needs to be solved this problem currently?Results: 4 out of 5 users mentioned that we need to take diversity issues seriously.
How might we help companies' C-suites and leaders create an DEI company culture?
How might we help workshop participants improve DEI competency and sensitivity through training?
How might we create a "safe space" for participants to share feelings and process internal conflicts centered around DEI?
How might we help sustained decision makers and leaders work on or deepen their DEI mindset on a regular basis?
After conducting stakeholder interviews, prospective customer interviews, and secondary research, we found three key findings:
1. C-suites have a hard time learning high-quality DEI information that is accessible in their day-to-day work because they are busy.
2. Information needs to be consumable on-the-go since C-suites are busy people. They prefer, in general, to listen to podcasts.
3.Diversity education should keep on going; and this is not one-and-done education. It is also important to not lose C-suites' interest in educating themselves. The education format should be absorbed and compelling storytelling.
