Episode 060 • 42 min
How can design be a tool for impactful change?
In this episode, Sam meets with Boyuan Gao, a designer and futurist who is partnering with companies to create equitable products, services, content, and experiences. Boyuan talks about how she and Jahan Mantin founded Project Inkblot and how the core of their work centers around the “why.” Later on in the show, they are joined by Antionette Carroll, the President and CEO of the Creative Reaction Lab, a nonprofit educating and deploying youth to challenge racial and health inequities impacting Black and Latinx populations. Antionette shares what led her to her work, the value of taking a break, and the ramifications around language. Together, Boyuan and Antionette dive deeper into work that designs with diversity.
