Antionette Carroll, founder, president and CEO of Creative Reaction Lab, believes systems that perpetuate inequality and oppression do so by design. Therefore, designers dedicated to justice have an opportunity: to partner with disadvantaged communities to redesign the systems to produce more equitable outcomes. In this inspiring talk, given at Adobe’s career resource and annual conference, 99U, Carroll shares her own journey to becoming an equity designer and calls upon the design community at large to reexamine its biases and approaches to the profession.
