Designing Equity

An Event From We Live Here and AIGA Saint Louis

After spending the last mini-season discussing how municipal divides impact racial equity, we wanted to examine equity from another angle… design.

Because if racism is designed, what does it mean to design toward racial equity?

To answer that question, we teamed up with AIGA St. Louis, the local chapter of the largest oldest and largest professional membership organization for design, to host an evening of stories and discussion with St. Louis-based designers: Antionette Carroll, MK Stallings, and Erika Harano.

You can find the stories and discussion in the video above.

Jia Lian Yang holds both a Master of Social Work from Washington University in St. Louis and a Master of Divinity from Eden Theological Seminary. She is the co-founder of the St. Louis-based Who Raised You? podcast, which explores culture and family with a focus on stories from people of color. The show won the Arts & Education Council of St. Louis’ 2018 stARTup competition. And this year, St. Louis Magazine’s editors named it the best local podcast.
