The tools and practices designers learn in education and the profession looks similar to those used to build systems of oppression into our built environment. Exposing racialized history is a precondition to connecting and using the tools of environmental design to build just cities. Candid reflections on this topic are needed to disrupt the status quo. This session will frame the context from Session1 and move towards personal responsibility and behavior change to take the steps towards a more equitable built environment. Participants will learn about biases, disrupt patterns of status quo, and build a reflective practice as a step towards behavioral change.
