ISSUE 12: EQUITY AND INCLUSION
Promoting fairness through the built environment
We design with community in mind and therefore we have a responsibility to drive equity in the work we do. Equity means fairness in the treatment of people. In this issue we highlight current design projects in which equity is a strong component. We examine design ideas that promote equitable housing and culturally relevant healthcare, smart data to provide city services fairly, innovation to make career education more flexible, and research in neglected housing types to make cities more affordable. We also share insights we surfaced in frank conversations within our teams about actions design practices can follow to contribute to a more equitable and inclusive world.
