Working through the Designing Spaces for All Worksheet, step by step We are now going to look at how we design physical and virtual spaces that honours everything we’ve just mentioned. The conscious design methodology and designing an inclusive space isn’t architecture, but its so much more than this. Its looking at the needs of the users and goes through a guided process that upholds the very best in diversity thinking. Work through Part 1, ask participants to think of a project, self guide yourself through this part, or do it as a group with others? We are mostly looking at how to design an inclusive work space and so below describes how we would follow this process with a group of individuals within a given work place working through the guide, but feel free to adapt to work for you, as an individual, pair or smaller group. If working as an individual on this process then be aware you will bring your unconscious bias with you, the whole idea is to include everyone from your space so its best to include all necessary groups in the decision making process by having key members of your work place actively working through this guide. How you choose or arrange this is your decision.
Write your own definitions Before we state the definitions of Diversity, Accessibility, Inclusion, Equity & Justice used within this course we’d like you first to spend some time to write your own definitions and later we can compare them to see how we each define our own social environment. Take your time, think hard and please do not use external resources like dictionaries, the internet or talk with other people. It will make an interesting exercise to look at the existing definitions we have that surround this subject, our idea here isn’t to spoon feed you the ‘facts’ but to help you self-reflect and be a little more conscious of your actions and thoughts.
