Ep 111 #ShareTheMicNow: Dismantling White Supremacy in Design by Antionette Carroll
The Crazy One
The fourth of the #ShareTheMicNow episodes was created by Antionette Carroll in conversation with David Clifford the founder of Design School X and Liberatory Design, and Timothy Bardlavens co-founder of &Design and Product Design Manager at Facebook discussing Dismantling White Supremacy in Design. Antionette D. Carroll is the Founder and CEO of Creative Reaction Lab, a nonprofit social enterprise designing healthy and racially equitable communities for Black and Latinx populations through education and training programs, community engagement consulting, an online national platform, and open-source tools and resources. Creative Reaction Lab is creating a collaborative youth-led, community-centered movement challenging racial inequities in the education, media, health and healthcare, and government and public service sectors. Within this capacity, Antionette has pioneered a new form of creative problem solving called Equity-Centered Community Design. Throughout her career, Antionette has worked for non-profits working for social justice, human rights, and diversity and inclusion. These experiences led to her background as a social entrepreneur, non-profit leader, and design activist. Antionette's personal mission in life is to challenge standards, make CHANGE, and CHAMPION approaches resulting in foundational and community impact.David H. Clifford has been an artist, designer, builder, and equity/social justice-oriented educator for almost 25 years building irresistible learning environments of belonging and creativity. David, a heterosexual, upper-middle-class, able-bodied White man, is the beneficiary of the generations of oppression of Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) and women. David identifies as a deviant of the dominant caste, using his legacy of privilege to challenge the very systems and structures of oppression that placed him in his unearned place of power. This self-awareness, coupled with his design/builder mindset and skill-set, equips David to rattle status quo cages found within the White worlds of education and the design, design thinking, and the shop class/maker communities.Timothy Bardlavens is a Product Design Leader, a Cultural Strategist, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) specialist, a Fellowship Co-Founder, and International Speaker & Facilitator. Currently, a Product Design Manager at Facebook, Timothy supports Community Experiences within the Facebook App, leading teams focused on new Member Experiences and Ecosystem Growth. Previously, he has led teams for Zillow’s newest venture, Zillow Offers—building the team and product vision of an end-to-end experience for buying, selling, financing and managing a home, all within the Zillow ecosystem. In addition to Microsoft, where his leadership focused on core UX and Intelligent (AI/ML) experiences in Outlook across all endpoints, platform experiences that span the O365 Suite and core browsing experiences in Edge.SHOW NOTES:http://thecrazy1.com/episode111/FOLLOW THE CRAZY ONE:Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, Facebook

I can't tell you how excited I am to share this conversation with Antionette Carroll with you. Longtime listeners of the show may remember her first appearance here back in 2014. In the six years since then, Antionette has risen to become one of the design community's most outspoken advocates, and one of its fiercest critics. As the founder and CEO of Creative Reaction Lab, her advocacy work has been shared around the world. This week's episode is a bit different than usual. You'll learn about the origins of Creative Reaction Lab, hear about her new venture &Design with Timothy Bardlavens (another past Revision Path guest!), and get some candid talk about the country's oldest professional organization for designers, AIGA. Antionette is proof that one person can really make an impression in the world through hard work, honesty, and determination!Links Antionette Carroll's 2014 interview Antionette Carroll's Website Antionette Carroll on Instagram Antionette Carroll on Twitter Creative Reaction Lab Creative Reaction Lab on Instagram Creative Reaction Lab on Twitter &Design &Design on TwitterLike this episode?

For our final episode of this season, we talked with past AIGA St. Louis President and current AIGA National Board Member Antionette Carroll about her non-profit, Creative Reaction Lab. Creative Reaction Lab was founded in response to the unrest in Ferguson, MO (August 2014) in the form of a 24-hour design challenge. Since then, it's developed into a robust program that has received national and international acclaim for the way it approaches equity in design and how to make an impact. Thank you to Anna Katherine Roehm for contributing to the artwork, as well as Dustin Schaefer for his ongoing technical advice and expertise. And thank YOU, our listeners, for tuning in!
