Continuing with earlier research about Equity Centered Community Design, it’s important to explore the who, what, when, where, why and how of these design perspectives. Having broad groups of people will always help create solutions that can help and guide understanding of larger groups of people. It’s important to have the representation of many different groups so that we can build the trust and loyalty between diverse groups of people and advocate for them all equally.

On the other side of that it’s definitely important that while we gain understanding of what they bring to the table, we must see what they lack and how we can make up for that in design. When it comes to the exercise mentioned in the article, my group in my Human Centered Design class have done a similar format to decide who and what we need to be researching and how we can get a broader and more balanced set of information on our topic.

One thing important to some members of the group I’m a part of for the mentioned project that the article talks bout is humility and empathy. As a member I must recognize how I perceive the world and how that influences my opinions, and I also have to be able to put myself in others shoes to see their humility as well as why their opinion has the same weight and value as my own.

An important part of this is recognizing the things we have learned and the context we’ve learned them in and how we can dismiss them to be more inclusive and remove oppression. The article mentions great questions like questioning and being critical of works and not just taking what is said for what it is. It’s about diving deeper into the works and finding out the motives and experiences that led to their interpretations and seeing if there’s other interpretations that might be more correct.
