Equity Guide for Techies


White Paper


Date Updated




The goal of the workbook is to help techie teams define and redefine success for a project by linking success criteria to equitable outcomes. I pulled from established design techniques, and I learned from (and am deeply grateful to) some remarkable authors to inform this workbook. By the end of the workbook, I hope you walk away with three outcomes.
A) A sense of which group(s) of people are likely to benefit most from your efforts, or who might be at particular risk from inequitable results of your efforts, as well as ideas about who could tell you more about such potential benefits and risks.

B) Intentionally establishing an equitable direction for your efforts, as well as actionable next steps for your team to take.

C) A reliable process for incorporating equity into your efforts and emphasizing its role in your efforts.
