Equity by Design Bootcamp Series: New York

  • Design for Social Innovation @ SVA NYC 136 West 21st Street New York, NY, 10011 United States (map)

Join us for an engaging weekend with a community of people interested in co-designing better, more equitable futures.

We’ll kick off the weekend on Friday with an interactive discussion over dinner to begin to lay the foundation of Equity-Centered Community Design (ECCD), exploring personal identity + power and how they relate to humility and empathy.

Saturday will take us deeper into ECCD using a local systemic challenge to explore the process in teams, practicing ideation, rapid prototyping, and testing + learning of your co-created approaches.

Our final bit of time on Sunday will come full circle with activities and discussion of integrating ECCD into your mindset with implications for future ongoing practice.


Please note that participation in this series does not indicate certification to formally train others in ECCD and is instead intended to support participants in cultivating this mindset and practice in themselves and others in their communities. If you are interested in certification, please keep an eye out for further engagement opportunities coming in the year ahead!

We’re excited to gather intergenerational folks from all Narrative & Livelihood Shapers (health and healthcare, media, education, and government/public service). For this reason, we ask that each organization send a maximum of 3 people* to promote a more diverse and representative attendance. In the interest of shifting power for co-creation, we also encourage organizations to send both leadership and staff members versus one or the other.
